Feedback from our recent online ISO 55001 Asset Management Lead Auditor courses

“I now have much greater confidence in utilising the 55000 standard through an audit process to help Organisations maximise their ability to deliver asset management and business objectives.”

“I was a bit worried about being an online course as it was my first time completing such a course online, however, Rob kept the course well structured, and included lots of group exercises”

“The first day of the course I was a little unsure. I think having had no experience of asset management the first case study I struggled with, with not knowing the requirement of the standard. After a few days into the course i realised your method behind this. May be a slightly easier one would be better for the first case study” (Note – we have acted on this useful suggestion)

“I was a bit worried about being an online course as it was my first time completing such a course online, however, Rob kept the course well structured, and included lots of group exercises”

“It was the first time I have done an online training course so wasn’t sure how it would work, and suprisingly it worked well. I enjoyed the course and it is a great to have something else under my belt, I now hope to put this into practice and gain more knowledge and experience. The information provided was excellent”

“I found the whole course interesting and informative. As a relative newcomer to asset management I found day 1 especially helpful. The insight I gained from the course will assist me in terms of not only the auditing side but the asset management system development. Rob was friendly, informative, calm and overall an excellent course leader”

“A very enjoyable and informative course with the right blend of presentations and interactive exercises. The quizzes and knowledge based assessments throughout the course proved to be valuable preparation for the final exam. Whilst a physical course would have been preferred , in general the online training worked well and even introduced some new applications I had never used before. Thanks Rob – overall a great experience!”
