We are currently experiencing the largest ever construction build of infrastructure in many states across the country. Australia’s focus on delivering projects in the built environment as a pathway to recovery post COVID, means delivering excellence in infrastructure, roads, construction and transport. Understanding, managing, and optimizing the asset base sustainably in this environment is essential for success.
A collaborative partnership has been established between the Asset Management Council (AMCouncil) and the Centre for Professional Engineering Education (CPEE) to create a course to meet current industry needs delivering best practice, resulting in the launch of the new four unit Graduate Certificate in Asset Management in 2021. This program directly addresses upskilling in the area of infrastructure and roads, with the two core units being 'Asset Management Principles' and 'Economics of Financial Management'.
The Asset Management Council is an internationally recognised organisation at the forefront of asset management knowledge and development who are a founding member of both the Global Forum on Maintenance and Asset Management (GFMAM) and World Partners in Asset Management (WPiAM) and a Technical Society of Engineers Australia.
National Chair Dave Daines said, "We are delighted to be collaborating with CPEE who are known for delivering excellence in education in roads, pavements and asset management, whilst leveraging the expertise of AMCouncil to deliver this new course to the industry starting in semester one, 2021."
The course has been designed to be delivered fully online with ongoing interaction with Unit Chairs during the Semester. The first core Unit available deals with Asset Management Principles and meets with CPD requirements for Engineers Australia.
