AM 305 - Planning and Decision-Making


AM 305 builds your planning and decision-making skills. It does this by exploring methods and techniques to support future investment and current lifecycle decisions within an asset management context.

Attendees will understand how to define the process, methods and criteria to make decisions over the life of assets. This includes financial and non-financial considerations, developing works programmes, and asset performance indicators.

The course materials are based on the authoritative resources International Infrastructure Management Manual (IIMM) and ISO 55000 suite of Standards.

On completion, learners are awarded a digital badge which can be saved and shared.
