Higher Certificate in Property Services and Facilities Management

IT Sligo in formal collaboration with the Society of Chartered Surveyors of Ireland (SCSI) are delighted to launch Ireland’s first online part time Higher Certificate in Property Services and Facilities Management. As a result of recent regulation in the property sector, this programme addresses a national skills deficit and enables graduates apply to the Property Services Regulatory Authority (PRSA) to be granted A, B, C and D licenses.

The course is designed to equip students with knowledge of all factors affecting the property and facilities management profession. Students will develop a keen understanding of the marketplace and a skillset that will enable them to influence and adapt to changes in the property market as they arise.

Graduates will also be able to ensure that the property and facilities management profession remains proactive to the fast-paced changing environment in which it operates. Graduates will leave with a high degree of professional competence and will have well developed analytical, critical, judgemental and communication skills

The programme is delivered part-time online over two stages.

Stage one of the programme consists of six taught modules and a Work Based Learning module delivered over one academic year (September to May). The taught modules examine key aspects relating to Facilities Management. Work Based Learning (WBL) is a key component of the programme and accounts for 25 credits. The purpose of the WBL module is to enable students to demonstrate the ability to apply their learning on an on-going basis throughout the year in the context of the academic content delivered on the programme.

Stage two of the programme consists of six taught modules and a 25 credit Work Based Learning module delivered over one academic year (September to May). The taught modules examine key aspects relating to Property Services.
