Greetings in the Spirit of Communio!

The MaPSA Commission on Human Resource-Continuing Education (CHR-CE) in partnership with St. Scholastica’s College Manila (SSCM) Center for Continuing Education and Development conducted a series of meetings and discussed the expansion and exploration of possible programs for our school personnel that shall benefit our respective schools. SSCM recently inaugurated Certificate in Building and Facilities Management originally organized for private companies which is now adjusted in a school setting to accommodate schools that needed improvement of their school’s facilities. The upkeep and management of school facilities such as classrooms, buildings, or offices are vital in the school’s operation as they set a good learning environment to our students and stakeholders. Thus, the rationale of a new certificate program, the Certificate in Building and Facilities Management.

This course provides an overview and fundamental knowledge on building and facilities management. It aims to equip its participants’ competencies and skills required in understanding building and facilities maintenance which include identifying issues and providing solutions for proper and efficient handling of physical assets. In particular, this program includes topics that are relevant and essential to school buildings and facilities management.

At the end of the program, the students/participants are expected to:

2. develop familiarity with the different areas of building and facilities management;
3. acquire necessary skills in identifying problems, providing solutions, and developing plans and strategies related to physical asset maintenance and management;
4. be updated on current demands and requirements essential to building and facilities management; and
