This self-paced, 9-module online course includes assessment questions and exercises at the end of each online module to review learned knowledge. This course is taught by Stanford Professor Martin Fischer, Director of the Center for Integrated Facility Engineering (CIFE), part of the Stanford School of Engineering.
