Becoming a Certified Asset Management Assessor Course

The “Certified Asset Management Assessor” (CAMA) certification establishes an individual's credentials in asset management knowledge and comprehension, globally.

Developed and authorized by PEMAC, the Plant Engineering and Maintenance Association of Canada, this course prepares asset management professionals who are considering writing the Certified Asset Management Assessor Exam. CAMA certification is not only for current or future assessors. This certification benefits processionals who want to demonstrate their understanding of true asset management and the new standard for management systems for AM for which ISO 55001 exists.

No time to study for the CAMA Exam?

Reduce your pre-exam stress by spending time with the experts. Or simply establish your asset management knowledge. This course is designed to give individuals (with the necessary background experience) an efficient overview of the recommended preparation material for the CAMA Exam. These materials provide insight into: (1) the ISO 5500x framework of documents, (2) the GFMAM Asset Management Landscape and (3) the GFMAM Competency Specification which indicates what ISO 5500x Asset Management Systems Assessors must know to complete that task effectively.

All these documents are available and can be studied independently. But why not take advantage of the opportunity to discuss with a group of peers and the facilitators?

This course is ideal for professionals with a variety of backgrounds (engineering, business management, project management, consulting, operations) who are responsible for physical asset management and have five or more years of experience. 

A group of PEMAC volunteers have developed and maintain the Becoming a Certified Asset Management Assessor program curriculum. PEMAC qualifies the instructors and authorizes teaching institutions to offer the program.
