Why offer courses in Asset Management?


The Buried Asset Management Institute-International (BAMI-I) created the Certification of Training in Asset Management (CTAM) program to increase awareness and train utility personnel on the best way to implement and use asset management to extend the life and efficiency of their water and wastewater systems. The CTAM series is an online educational process for obtaining certification of training in management of underground asset in­frastructure.

  The CTAM program was developed by BAMI-I (Buried Asset Management Institute - International) in conjunction with Purdue University, in partnership with Water Finance & Management, formerly UIM: Water Utility Infrastructure Management, and is hosted by Purdue University.  
  *Registrants have six months from the time of enrollment to complete each CTAM course. Each course takes an average of 20 hours to complete depending on the individual’s background and experience. CEUs/PDHs will not be issued until each course and its exams are completed. Each course is independent of the others; however, it is recommended that they be taken in sequence. All courses must be completed prior to applying for AWAM or PWAM certification.
