The FMANM & CNM Mission to Train
Future Facility Managers Explored in March
Members and guests of the Facility Manager Association of New Mexico gathered in March to hear Kristen Benedict, Dean of the School of Applied Technologies from Central New Mexico Community College, elaborate the connection between CNM and FMANM towards educating the skilled tradesmen of today who are the facility managers of the future.
"By example, for every six welders who are retiring, only one tradesman is entering into the field. This immediate crisis will escalate exponentially," she said, underscoring the importance of the joint, critical mission to provide training, scholarship money, and encouragement for people entering this and related fields. "These are high-paying jobs with a real future. CNM has gathered an instructional staff with the knowledge to give students what they need to be successful in the world of skilled trades. With a focus upon the short term, trainings are industry approved to help improve the economic and workforce needs in our community."
