Instructor Competencies

Some of you may be wondering what I’ve been busy about lately…..

Yes, I am taking on learning and be an ACTA Trainer and Curriculum Developer by IAL. That is to continually improving on my skills, knowledge and attitude to ensure Instructor-led training is done successfully. In doing that I believe  it can result in enhanced performance, investment of time, money and opportunity and motivation of trainees.

In striving to become an outstanding Instructor (Facilitator, Trainer) can be very challenging. We must continually observe the competencies (eg IBSTPI) as Instructor, to:

  • Anaylse course materials and learner information
  • Ensure preparation of the instructional venue
  • Establish and maintain credibility as Instructor
  • Manage the learning environment
  • Demonstrate effective communication skills
  • Demonstrate effective presentation skills
  • Demonstrate effective questioning skills and techniques
  • Respond appropriately to learners’ need for clarification or feedback
  • Provide positive reinforcement and motivational incentives
  • Use instructional methods appropriately
  • Use media effectively
  • Evaluate learner performance
  • Evaluate delivery of instruction
  • Report evaluation information

I look forward to continually increase value to learners and to their organisation, in facility management.

To Your Success!

BCAA-IFMA Regional Facility Management Conference 2010

THANK YOU so much for those who expressed concern about my blog. Yes, it’s been a long silence……Some of you may know that I have been spending much time in promoting Facility Management profession and its practices and in creating awareness to raise the recognition for FM.

I like to update about the awareness of Facility Management and its awareness in Singapore, and probably South-East Asia.


22nd & 23rd April, 2010, marked a breakthrough for the Facility Management Profession through the organised BCAA-IFMA Regional Conference 2010, entitled “Sustainable Facility Management – A Business Advantage to Organisations” held at Grand Hyatt, Singapore. The events include, on Day One, one full day Seminar and evening Networking Dinner and Day Two, a half-day Workshop and a half-day Site Visits.

The most significant event was the signing of Memorandum of Understanding, MOU, between Building Construction Authority, BCA, and the International Facility Management Association, IFMA. The MOU was signed by Dr John Keung, CEO, BCA and Mr Tony Keane, CEO and President, IFMA. The event was published in The Straits Times, dated 23rd April, 2010.




At the evening Networking Dinner, presentation of certifications for the Facility Management Professional, FMP,and the Certified Facility Manager, CFM, has demonstrated the existence of Facility Management knowledge and competencies that are recognised globally and adopted by associations such as the Facility Management Australia ( FMA), British Institute of Facilities Management ( BIFM), Facility Management Japan ( FMJ) and etc. The credentials marked the proficiencies and competencies of Facility Management practitioners, having achieved the awards. The FMPs and CFMs are well seek after by Multi-National Companies, especially the Americans, British, Europeans, Japanese, etc, that recognised the values that these Facility Management professionals will bring to their organisations.





Ultimately, the events were organised to create the value of Facility Management, as the Conference put it, as a business advantage to organisations. How well will the profession and its practitioners will be recognised and raised to a higher level lies on each and every facility management practitioners. Together, let us take pride and continually contribute to raise the recognition of our profession.


To Your FM Success!
