Asset Management Training - POSTPONED

7 August 2017 - 8 August 2017
8:30 am - 4:00 pm
Novotel Tainui Hamilton
Alma Street


The EEA has developed a new two day course on asset management, to be held in Hamilton on Monday 7th and Tuesday 8th August 2017, tailored especially for the electricity supply industry. The course is intended for people working in the electricity sector who wish to gain an understanding of the full breadth of modern asset management practice.

Attendees may be asset managers new to the field, people working in a related field such as operations or finance, or those who already have considerable experience in aspects of asset management who wish to broaden their understanding. The course is applicable to those who manage assets at an operational level as well as those who are responsible for strategic aspects of asset management.

The course is based on training material offered in public courses by the New Zealand Asset Management Support (NAMS) organisation, but is customised for the electricity sector. The customisation builds on the recent experience of NAMS in delivering in-house asset management training for Transpower.

Day 2 – Telling the Asset Management Story

This seminar is a practical ‘how to’ course on communicating the asset management story to internal and external stakeholders. Asset Management Plans are a key output from the asset management planning process and have a vitally important role in communicating asset management issues, investment needs, solutions and expenditure forecasts.

The seminar will help participants who are involved in writing, contributing to or reviewing asset management plans to identify what they should focus on to tell the story most effectively and in accordance with good practice.

The workshop will enable attendees to answer the following questions:

    • What is good practice, and how is everyone else doing it?
    • What should I focus on to get the most value into my plans?
    • What options are there for format and delivery of AMPs?
    • What organisational resource and structure is required?

On completion of the course, attendees will be able to write, review and/or update Asset Management plans that:

    • Tell the organisation's asset management story in a logical manner
    • Use language that is appropriate for the reader
    • Support the higher level strategic documents
    • Provide a robust basis for long-term forecasts
