Asset Management Competency and Your Workforce
Do you have an AM Policy?
Writing an Asset Management Policy is a critical first step in an organization's AM journey. We've designed this hands-on and collaborative course to help communities develop their own customized Infrastructure Asset Management Policy.

AM Workforce Competency Development
Many organizations are struggling to build the workforce capacity and capabilities required to develop and implement formal, organization-wide AM programs. It’s important for staff across your organization, not just ‘core AM staff’, to have the right competencies.
In addition to our training services, and as the development lead behind the Canadian Network of Asset Managers’ (CNAM) AM Competency Framework for Canadian Communities (AMCF), we can also support you with more comprehensive workforce competency development in your organization.
This can range from adopting the AM Competency Framework wholesale, to aligning it with your organization’s existing competency model, to helping you establish formal competency gap assessment and development programs at appropriate levels, to full integration with all your people management programs across the organization, setting you up for a sustainable resourcing future.

Awareness Building and Training…is that all we need to do?
Training plays an important role in building competency across your workforce, and we can certainly help with that. But there is so much more to consider if you are trying to build a quality and high performing organization.
As per the implementation section of CNAM’s AMCF, Formal learning (such as classroom or virtual training) can make up as little as 10% of what you should be doing to develop your competency, in any field or subject!
As an organization trying to develop competencies amongst your workforce, you need to give proper consideration to two other important areas: Social learning; opportunities to interact and work with more experienced individuals and Experiential learning; opportunities to apply the theory learned in a real world setting.
