BMM Offers Hands-On Training for Maintenance Technicians Building Maintenance Management May 17, 2022
Hands on Training

Building Maintenance Management is proud to offer an in-house training facility to equip up-and-coming maintenance technicians with the skills needed for the job. BMM has a mock apartment set up in a warehouse that they use for the hands-on training. New employees with little to no experience are guided through a two-week course that takes them through the basics of plumbing, electrical, carpentry and more.

The mock apartment includes a kitchen, bathroom, appliances and everything else you’d find in a typical apartment, so the trainees can get real experience repairing sheetrock, replacing light fixtures, fixing appliances and more. The instructors (BMM technicians themselves) systematically go through everything the trainee will come across when providing maintenance services for a multi-housing facility.

The training course was started more than two years ago and has been a great asset for new employees with little to no handyman experience. The course emphasizes safety throughout, so employees have a solid understanding of how to complete various tasks in a safe manner. BMM offers the course about once a quarter and usually trains two people at a time. This provides plenty of hands-on learning and personalized instruction.

Once new employees go through the two-week training, they then shadow another technician with the company for several weeks to gain more on-the-job experience. When they have a good understanding of the various maintenance tasks they will come across on the job, they can begin to work on their own. BMM always has other technicians available to help and offer advice when needed.

BMM provides commercial and multi-housing maintenance services for the Twin Cities area. Currently, we are seeking more maintenance and remodeling technicians.
