The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the Woodhouse Partnership Asset Management Academy are launching a new online course designed to meet the learning needs of engineers across the world. The course, ‘Asset Management for Engineers’, takes the form of a modular online course that has been the product of an 18-month collaboration and is aligned to ISO 55000 standards for Asset Management and the Competency Framework and Asset Management ‘Landscape’ of the Institute of Asset Management (IAM).
With a 25-year history of developing bespoke training content, tailored to organisations and industry sectors, Woodhouse Partnership was delighted to be commissioned by the IET to create this highly interactive eLearning programme.
Keri Dickens, IET Senior Commissioning Editor, engaged the Woodhouse Academy, having reviewed options and consulted existing Academy clients. She said: “Having established a market among the Engineering community for a specific Asset Management for Engineers online course, the Woodhouse Academy was an obvious partner and were highly recommended”.
Christine Leonard, University of Cambridge, provided one of the independent course reviews: “Their content is excellent, some of the best I have seen and it’s great that the 13 hours of learning can contribute towards the IET Continual Professional Development (CPD) hours”.
With the project underway, the Woodhouse team worked closely with the IET to select core concepts material and differentiated sector-specific case studies and bespoke content for the target audience and course scope. This is particularly important when catering to a wide range of cultures, industrial contexts, and regulatory/commercial environments.
Luc Juffkins, Woodhouse Academy manager, led a 4-man team to design and build the training modules: “Together with the IET we have created a platform for IET members to learn Asset Management principles, the practical techniques, and soft skills needed to raise standards in their organizations.”
Grace Phelps, IET Project Editor, added: “It was a pleasure to work with The Woodhouse Partnership… The quality of the content was outstanding, and they fully understood the presentation required to translate the material into our e-learning format. Communication was fantastic throughout from all members of the Woodhouse team and they were eager to review the material and seek improvements wherever possible. The collaboration between Woodhouse and the IET Academy has resulted in an excellent end product.”
