Management short courses


Practical, work based program for new managers.


Learning to manage others for the first time requires an adjustment to the way you work, how you perceive yourself and how others perceive you. FMI has developed a range of New Manager Training Programs to assist new managers to make the transition to their new role and enhance their effectiveness. Our Programs combine structured learning with on the job projects, feedback tools workplace activity.

Making the transition from a team member to a new manager, frontline manager, supervisor or team leader can be challenging. The new role is usually more demanding than anticipated.  This can be stressful for the new manager, their manager, their team and the organisation. There is often a gap between expectations, capabilities and experience and those required for the new position.
