Asset Integrity Management Training
Asset Integrity Management training course
Our asset integrity management training course is designed to address the main challenges in asset management and to help you effectively manage your equipment so that you achieve long term plant reliability, efficiency, safety and profitability.
Intertek brings its years of Total Quality Assurance expertise and knowledge to the course content and, as we are at the cutting edge of asset integrity management technology, you will also benefit from learning about the latest industry methodologies, techniques and tools.

The people aspect of AIM will be examined. We will talk about the leadership and competency needed for an AIM program. This is followed by a review of key processes and procedures for AIM, with particular emphasis on hazard / risk identification, management and assurance. Plant issues of AIM are then presented, including pressure systems, protective devices, risk-based inspection / maintenance and corrosion management. A brief wrap-up concludes the course.
