ISO 55001 - Masterclass for Asset management

Masterclass language: English


Organisations that succeed in managing their physical assets in the most efficient way possible, are sure to save time, money and lots of executive headaches.

To help companies and organisations get value from their assets, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) published a set of three management standards in 2014: the ISO 55000 series. ISO 55000, ISO 55001 and ISO 55002 provide terminology, requirements and guidance for implementing, maintaining and improving an effective asset management system that is accepted worldwide across all sectors and asset intensive organisations. 

What is the added value of an asset management system? How do you roll out asset management? And how can ISO 55001 help you to increase value? NBN provides you with either basic or in-depth insights into this topic during a Masterclass.

For whom?

  • Management companies
  • Project developers & designers
  • Asset & Facility managers
  • Contract Managers
  • Contractors & Suppliers
  • HR managers and Financial Managers 
  • Operation, plant & maintenance managers/engineers
  • Heads of Technical Service 
  • Internal consultants/advisers
  • Staff officers & project team members are involved in the implementation of an Asset Management System (AMS) according ISO 55001

Why participate?

During this 2-day Masterclass, we will guide you through key steps for implementing an effective and efficient asset management system and how to implement it into other management systems. You will learn how to ensure that your AMS takes into account organizational objectives as well as actual business operations and strikes a balance between operational risks, total cost of ownership and performance.

At the end of the Masterclass, you will be able to:

  • set up, implement and maintain an effective and efficient asset management system in accordance with ISO 55001
  • optimise the added value of your organization's assets during the entire delivery lifecycle
  • demonstrate that your asset management system meets the ISO 55001 requirements

In addition, you will receive a copy of the ISO 55001:2014 and the ISO 55002 standard (publication expected at the end of 2018).

In-company training

In this type of training your requirements provide the starting point. A preliminary interview will help us adapt the content of the session to your particular needs. In-company training offers a number of specific advantages:

  • The training is tailored to the specific needs of your company. This means that your employees will be able to apply their newly acquired knowledge more rapidly after the training session.
  • Your employees will feel more involved because the exercises and cases will be specific to your company or business sector.
  • Lower cost per participant than for individual trainings.
  • Greater flexibility in the choice of the location, date and language of the training (Dutch, French or English).
