IHEEM has partnered with Asset Wisdom as one of its knowledge partners to deliver this online course ‘Asset Management Foundation Award’.
This course provides you with the basics of Asset Management, as well as concepts, language, and benefits of Asset Management and, potentially, your role within it.
This course provides a great foundation in understanding the basic concepts, language and significant benefits organisations gain from an Asset Management (AM) approach. It also introduces the content and role of the International Standards for AM (ISO 55000).
The Course sets out the basis for adopting an AM approach, what it entails and the key determinants for success.
The Course also enables learners to see how AM 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.
