Asset Management – Building Blocks to Service Excellence

Online Course

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to expand your industry knowledge at the only transit asset management course in Canada! After all, great asset management translates into great service delivery.

Come and learn from internationally recognized experts about the building blocks of asset management (AM). Over the course of 10 weeks of training modules, using invaluable templates and resource materials, this course will set the new standard for AM expertise in transit.

This self-paced online course will teach you how to manage your operation's assets (buses/rolling stock, equipment/tools, and facilities, stations and stops) to provide a sustained level of service in a cost-effective manner and at an acceptable level of risk.

Dynamic training modules will lead participants all the way from defining terms to developing AM plans that affect fleet availability, life cycle costing, parts and supplies, maintenance, financial concepts and controls, performance measurements and key indicators.
