As the first organization in the U.S. to be acknowledged as an ETP, the Institute is now qualified to issue IAM-endorsed training certificates to individuals who successfully complete the selected courses covered by this scheme. The Institute’s ISO 55000: Asset Management System course is endorsed for the A1, A2 and B2 IAM course modules.

“People seeking professional development approved by the Institute of Asset Management now have a U.S.-based organization delivering that training. We are honored to be the first with this distinction,” stated Bill Wilder, director of the Life Cycle Institute.

The IAM endorses suitable training providers to deliver specified asset managment courses. The courses are based on identified training requirements from the IAM Competences Framework, which complements the requirements of ISO 5500X and PAS 55:2008. The IAM ETP is designed to help clients find suitable and reputable training providers that deliver relevant training using knowledgeable instructors.

The two-day ISO 55000: Asset Management System course is being offered July 14-15 and October 20-21, 2015 in Charleston, SC. To register, call 800-556-9589, email, or complete the online registration form.
