Taking our ongoing collaborative effort with LEORON Professional Development Institute to a new level, FM3IS Associates is very pleased to share we successfully delivered our first, online interactive facility management course.
The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has suspended the vast majority of international travel by foreigners. One of the impacts of this prudent decision was the inability of SVP Thomas Mitchell's to deliver the 5-day Facility Management Professional (FMP) Review Course in person from March 15-19 to the registered attendees based in Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. However, thanks to the advent of modern information technologies, the permission of IFMA, and the commitment of the students, Mr. Mitchell was able to interactively and collectively teach the course online, and in real time, to each student who joined the "virtual classroom" from various locations.
Distance Learning is not new, and many are now realizing its application value as a viable alternative during the current global pandemic crisis. We are thankful our recent inaugural effort worked out so well and remain ready to continue delivering this viable alternative to physical classroom training.
