The responsibilities of a facility maintenance can be great. Every day is different. Depending on the type of properties, most important is probably the heating and cooling requirements. If you are looking to be a part of the maintenance team, having the certification for HVAC will probably be one of the requirements. Besides working on the HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) systems, you will have to have some handyman skills, plumbing, electrical and the list goes on. If you want to be a facility maintenance manager, you not only need to have skills and knowledge as mentioned above, but you need to know how to motivate and guide a team, manage a budget, have good people skills and know how to prioritize. As a manager, I am responsible for all aspects of the building operations. Because they are commercial buildings, I work with janitorial crews, electricians, fire / safety vendors, HVAC vendors, roofing vendors, handyman vendors, with a limited budget. My goal is to reduce cost as we can, while still maintaining the buildings always addressing any safety and security issues first. If you feel you may be interested, you may want to see if there are any local internships for assistant property managers, and check with your high school or local community college to see if they offer any HVAC or Electrical certification programs. I wish you the best, good luck
