Diploma of Property Services (Asset and Facility Management)
Partner, Diorama Developments
I currently work as a property developer, working while studying has worked really well. The program is ideal for people currently working in a facilities management role.
I heard about the RMIT program while working as a property developer. It was the right qualification for me, and gave me the chance to network with other students across the facilities management sector.
The program covered risk management, budgeting, finance, hierarchy of building controls, procurement and so much more. It enhanced my skills and thoroughly prepared me to work in the industry.
I’ve enjoyed many aspects of the program, including the guest lecturers, inspiring teachers, and the opportunity to share knowledge and form friendships with my peers.
My favourite subject covered co-ordinating construction renovations of facilities. I have a passion for the development of facilities within the building and construction industry – a process that is challenging but has an extraordinary outcome.
Now that I’ve finished the program, I’m open to any future opportunities. I’d like to apply my skills creatively in this ever growing and changing workforce.
