Finance and Budgeting for Facility Managers e-Learning Course

Take a deeper dive into health care facility finance, one of the five areas of the CHFM exam.

Budgeting is one of the most important aspects of health care facility management. We have all heard the saying, “do more with less.” But without an adequate understanding of finances and the language of business, facility managers may have a more difficult time meeting that demand.
