fmfirst® product suite
Are you realising the full potential of fmfirst®? The fmfirst® product suite is constantly evolving, our courses ensure that users are utilising all available functionality for maximum system efficiency.  Mirroring the application, training is modular and can be tailored to fit the exact needs of your individual organisation. Applying our knowledge of NHS estates and facilities management – the courses are structured to fully reflect the realities of daily operational activities.

Which courses best suit your needs?
Managers:  2 day Introduction to fmfirst® provides a full overview of system capability. The course prepares system managers and supervisors prior to system installation and implementation.  Managers receive a full system overview and in addition, will be able to identify what training is required by other staff members.  Also an effective refresher course to further enhance fmfirst® useage in support of more efficient FM operations.

Help Desk staff:  1 day Task Management course – focuses on fmfirst® Asset Management and Report modules.

Facilities Operatives:  Using a “train the trainer” approach – facilities operatives can be trained internally by Managers after they have attended their course. However if required, we can offer a targeted 1 day course held either off or on-site at Asckey (depending on training requirements).
