Diploma in Asset Management: Transition to Advanced Concepts in Asset Management from IAM Certificate to IAM Diploma

This course is for people who already hold the IAM Certificate and who are now ready to develop their understanding of advanced concepts in asset management.  It is based on the syllabus of the IAM Diploma. Students may come to this course having studied for the Certificate using a variety of methods. This course includes a light review of the principles of asset management to give assurance that all students start the course from a common level. The course presenters encourage the use of relevant examples to bring the subject to life and stimulate learning through discussion.

The course starts with a review of the principles of asset management, including references to the growing body of knowledge. Having reviewed the principles, we will expand on the related subjects.  Leadership and AM Systems are looked at in more detail, then we examine Value and how to realise it throughout the asset life cycle. In Asset Care and Performance, we examine techniques for enhancing reliability and the options for performance measurement and monitoring of assets and asset management. Asset Information and Knowledge is covered in more detail, as is Demand Forecasting.  Investment Planning will cover both capital and revenue expenditure planning.

The critical issue of resourcing is looked at in Contractor and Supplier Management – how to identify resource requirements, then select and manage them. Managing Change looks at the need to influence the organisation’s culture and competence and describes the challenges to implement change successfully. Finally, on Day 4 we put all of these themes together in scenario-based exercises to consolidate the learning.
