CIOB launches new courses on asset management

The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) Academy and Asset Wisdom have teamed up to offer two online courses on built environment asset management to meet growing demand post-Grenfell and amid government decarbonisation targets.

They say the courses offer a professionally recognised career path in asset management while, for corporates, they offer business performance improvement through asset management competency.

The Academy offers two courses in asset management: the Asset Management Foundation Award and the Asset Management Certificate. 

The Foundation Award is an introduction to Asset Management, providing learners with understanding of basic theories and languages of asset management. The Certificate is a 14-module course providing full coverage into the fast developing discipline of asset management. Both courses are suitable for construction professionals looking to gain extensive knowledge of asset management to progress their career.

Adrian Montague, Associate Director of the CIOB Academy, said: "We believe there is a growing demand for Asset Management (AM) knowledge across the Building and Housing sectors.

"This is being driven, in part, to meet the major challenges post Grenfell, the government’s net-zero decarbonisation targets and application of new technologies as well as the need for whole life, whole systems investment decisions. We are delighted to partner Asset Wisdom so that we can offer our membership proven AM e-learning that will offer individuals a new career path way, add value to our corporate members staff and business alike and start to address the challenges we face today and in the future."
