An Introduction to Asset Management Auditing

The BSI Training Academy can teach you the essential knowledge and skills an internal auditor needs, along with the areas your Certification Body (CB) will be generally looking for to comply with generic internal auditing requirements in management system standards. This will include the meanings and intention of certification criteria and associated theories, methodologies, techniques or tools.

The adoption of an AMS is intended to help an organization realize the value from its assets, satisfying stakeholder requirements, and supporting the delivery of broader organizational objectives, through continually improving its asset management performance and achieving its asset management objectives. An internal audit is an essential element to an effective AMS, and by attending this course you will benefit by learning and developing the skills necessary to assess an organization’s ability to achieve these intended outcomes.

This course develops the necessary skills to assess and report on the implementation and effectiveness of processes based on ISO 55001. You’ll learn how to initiate an audit, prepare and conduct audit activities, compile and distribute audit reports, and complete follow-up activities.

The British Standards Institution (BSI, a company incorporated by Royal Charter), performs the National Standards Body activity (NSB) in the UK. BSI, together with other BSI Group Companies, also offers a broad portfolio of business solutions other than the NSB activity that help businesses worldwide to improve results through Standards-based best practice (such as certification, self-assessment tools, software, product testing, information products and training). Training courses are provided by BSI as part of its non-NSB services.
