Asset Management Fundamentals

December 8, 2021 | Online :: Central Time

“This course provided an excellent high-level overview of asset management. There were good references for those working to dig further into areas of interest.” Plant Programming Coordinator, Ontario Power Generation

“This was an excellent way to gauge where peers in the industry are and share experiences. The roundtable discussion was a great way to share our experiences across the industry and see what is working and what we are working toward achieving.” Engineer, AEP

The goal of this one-day training course is to provide a foundation level of understanding of basic asset management principles, concepts, and techniques. The course is based on the Institute of Asset Management Foundation Award training, which is aimed at anyone requiring basic knowledge of asset management to support their organization’s activities, including individuals who are:

  • New to asset management roles or beginning an asset management career
  • In roles that support or interact with an organization’s asset management activities
  • Providing asset management services or supporting the delivery of these services

For organizations that are undertaking an asset management journey, it is critical for all stakeholders to have a shared understanding of the scope, goals, and work products associated with asset management.  Also, one of the requirements for ISO 55000 certification is for all stakeholders across all levels of the organization to have a common understanding of asset management. This course will enable this understanding and provide evidence needed for a certification audit.
