Long-awaited tuition solution for FM professionals and learners

At last, the industry welcomes tuition books written on a topic-by-topic basis for each of three management levels.

Gone are the days where you had to pay a sizeable sum and hope you got a book that covered what you wanted. And how many books do you have sitting on your bookcase which helped only temporarily?

Now the ‘hit and hope’ technique of buying facilities management tuition books has been replaced by a tailored set of books to suit the study level; whether this is for junior, middle, experienced or strategic managers.

FMTuitionBooks.com book sizes vary from 90 pages per topic up to 140 pages per topic. They consist of the main tuition, workplace investigation opportunities and study revision exercises; and are printed in full colour. Prices range from £12.99 to £14.99, plus postage. Example books can even be viewed on-line before you buy.

The author of the FMTuitionBooks.com range, Gavin Horrocks, is an independent training consultant and has lectured at Kings College in London, tutored hundreds of learners working toward national qualifications and has been consultant to multiple TFM service providers, organisations of all sizes within all sectors and was a member of the FM tuition team at the largest public utilities training company in the UK.
