Asset Management Foundation Course
This course provides a great foundation in understanding the basic concepts, language and significant benefits organisations gain from an asset management approach. It also introduces the content and role of the International Standards for asset management (ISO 55000).
The course sets out the basis for adopting an asset management approach, what it entails and the key determinants for success.
The course also enables learners to see how asset management involves everyone in the organisation and how their role may be directly or indirectly impacted.
On successful completion of the course’s three modules and recommended reading, the learner will be fully prepared to take the Institute of Asset Management’s (IAM) knowledge test. This is incorporated as the final step and, on achieving a pass marked of 66% or higher, the learner will be issued with the IAM’s Foundation Award certificate.
This course contains three parts; 3 Modules + 1 Recommended Reading Text + 1 Knowledge Test. The reading section must be acknowledged as complete before the knowledge test can be accessed and completed.
