Training and Guidance

Education, training, facilitation and other guidance is available at every level, from the ‘first steps’ introduction to the subject to leading-edge methods, Masters-level education and organisational fine-tuning.


Providing the best training and guidance

The IAM has developed an Endorsed Training Provider scheme to assure standards and consistency in how the subject is introduced and the underlying concepts and key processes.

The IAM also developed a Competences Framework, identifying 7 primary roles in asset management, along with 128 competency elements, for determining appropriate recruitment, training and responsibility assignments. Woodhouse personnel have been intimately involved in developing these structures and specifications, and provide a very broad range of requirements assessment, competency development planning and training services, including customised development of ‘blended learning and ‘workplace learning’ methods.
