Jacobs' Asset Management Training course was launched in 2015 and to date has been delivered to more than 1,000 participants globally. The course is split into the following five modules that align with good practice asset management as outlined in ISO 55000, PAS 55 and the IAM’s learning framework:
- Module 1 - Introduction to Asset Management
- Module 2 - Asset Related Risk
- Module 3 - Asset Management Life Cycle
- Module 4 - Asset Information
- Module 5 - Financial and Business Impacts (including Asset Management Plans)
The course targets people who have some asset management experience. Each course can hold up to 25 people. The first two days will be busy, with a lot of course content to be covered, and as a result, these will be two full work days, along with necessary breaks and refreshments throughout the day. The exam will be on the morning of the third day, following a refresher session.
The course has been designed and refined to include the application of adult learning techniques – employing a mix of presentation and theory, real world stories and working exercises. Course attendees will find themselves applying asset management techniques to “MoneyPit Manor,” a fictional apartment building that is facing a number of infrastructure and service delivery challenges that infrastructure owners and asset managers would typically face, with the working exercises based on real data.
“The Jacobs team puts on a top notch Asset Management training course! The high quality training material and engaging exercises paired with personable facilitators that have real-world expertise creates a truly unique learning experience. Regardless of your role, knowledge, or experience you will come of this course excited to go back and apply what you’ve learned.”
— Anthony Limon, TransCanada, US Pipeline Integrity
“I have taken number of Asset Management-related training courses over the years and the training delivered by Jacobs was by far the most comprehensive. I would highly recommend this to anyone involved in Asset Management whether it be a senior manager, project manager or technical staff.”
— Imran Motala, Manager of Water and Wastewater Planning, Region of Peel, Canada.
"Jacobs delivered Asset Management Certificate training and examinations to approximately 100 staff from our Supply Chain Operations division. This was a key component of our ISO 55000 Asset Management Framework implementation. Jacobs tailored the course with specific examples from Network Rail and other industry sectors that made the course relevant and engaging to the delegates. By running the courses in parallel with the wider asset management improvement programme, we successfully achieved the collective benefits of:
- Raised staff awareness and competence,
- embedment of new governance processes, and
- stimulating constructive challenge for continuously improvement."
