Course Aims

This course is designed to discuss and share best practise processes and effective communication techniques to those that have already been instrumental to the PAM assessment process.  


Leaner would typically include those responsible for completing the PAM submission and those whose role is to gain the support of other Estates & Facilities officers and managers. The learning will build on the Introduction to PAM course for those new to PAM. 


Common issues and helpful solutions will be covered to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the assessment, therefore reducing the burden and administration of the process.
