The vast majority of engineers in Australia, and around the world, are involved in managing engineering assets. Every day decisions are made that affect the lifecycle cost of a company’s highly valued assets and there are increasing expectations to demonstrate competency and transparency in these decisions. Engineering Asset Management has evolved into a recognised discipline and this course draws on evolving International Standards and best practice to equip asset managers to make rational decisions in an increasingly uncertain world.
