New FM Programmes for Massey University: Have Your Say
Massey University is looking to develop programmes in Facilities Management. These New Zealand university qualifications will support FM members’ professional and career development, provide a qualification for school leavers and university students to attract them to a career in FM, and enable employer FM cadetships. This is HUGE for FMANZ and for the whole FM industry ... but we need your help to make it happen. In order to gauge industry support for these Certificate/Diploma and Graduate Certificate/Graduate Diploma programmes, the university needs feedback from our members. The information you provide via an anonymous survey will be used to support Massey's application to the Committee on University Academic Programmes (CUAP) and will help move these homegrown educational offerings one step closer to becoming a reality.

So please take a few minutes now to complete the university's quick survey. They need all feedback by Monday 16 September.

If you're an employer, please complete this survey.
If you're an employee, please complete this survey.
(Feel free to complete both, if applicable.)
