The IQ-AM Graduate Certificate in Asset Management is a post-graduate competency based qualification. It is designed to provide middle management and senior professionals with the skills and knowledge to participate in, and lead, practical planning and implementation of asset management for assets within their area of responsibility. Advanced insight in to sound asset management practice encourages participants to adopt an appropriate asset management framework or system aligned to the ISO 55001 Asset Management System (AMS) Standard.


Course Objectives

Provide participants with the skills and knowledge to implement and apply Asset Management to managing assets in an asset dependant organisation. All IQ-AM courses focus as much on the why you do things as much as the how.

The course consists of 5 Units of Competency


NAT10977001 Manage Asset Data and Knowledge


NAT10977002 Manage Risk and Performance of Assets


NAT10977003 Develop and Implement Asset Management Plans


NAT10977004 Formulate a Business Case for Expenditure Programs


NAT10977005 Prepare Operational and Capital Plans

The 14 modules cover topics providing participants with the skills, knowledge and understanding of:


Preparing the Asset Inventory – technical and financial elements


Current asset capability and performance


Prepare and present a State of the Assets report


Determine required and future levels of service


Manage the asset life cycle


Prepare and present a State of the Assets report


The course is available to participants who can demonstrate an aptitude to complete the course and have any of administrative, technical or trade backgrounds or obtained a Bachelor (AQF Level 7) qualification. Greatest benefit is gained by participants if they have sufficient relevant work experience in an Asset Management related field and currently employed in a role available to implement learning.

Recognition of Prior Learning

Participants undertake workplace based assessment tasks to develop and demonstrate competencies required to successfully complete the qualification. Potentially, evidence of your previous experience can be submitted for recognition of prior learning (RPL) if the outputs of that experience correspond to the specific Assessment Task requirements. 

Costs and Inclusions

The cost for the qualification is inclusive of all course materials, delivery (both in person and online), guidance and assessment marking.

The Value Paradigm

For Individuals

A proven goverment accredited and recognised qualification you can carry in to any asset management role in any industry. Being competency based it is evidence of both your knowledge of asset management and your skill in applying it.

For Organisations

Not only do organisations improve their capability in asset management, the assessment tasks require participants to produce outputs that are needed to assist the organisation to effectively manage their assets at a tactical level. Where an organisation sends multiple participants who then work in teams, major change management outcomes can be achieved. Some participants have identified and implemented major efficiency and effectiveness improvements for their organisations as a result of undertaking the course.

For Industry

Formal recognition of knowledge and skills is of fundamental benefit to the whole Asset Management community. The breadth and depth of understanding and skill demonstrated and applied by IQ-AM graduates means the general practice of asset management as a whole increases due to the change agent effect of them applying their competency in the workplace.
