BAMI-I asset management workshop with Atlanta DWM begins this week

The Buried Asset Management Institute-International (BAMI-I) is teaming up with the City of Atlanta’s Department of Watershed Management (DWM) to host a four-day Certification of Training in Asset Management (CTAM) workshop this month.

Scheduled for Sept. 9-12, the workshop will be a four-day offering of an exclusive four part series for the CTAM water infrastructure asset management certification. The workshop covers one course level per day. Upon completion of the four courses, participants receive designation as an Associate Water Asset Manager (AWAM) plus 30 hours of PDH credits.

The Buried Asset Management Institute (BAMI) was established in the Department of Watershed Management (DWM) for the City of Atlanta in 2003 as a result of the leadership and inspiration of Mayor Shirley Franklin and DWM Commissioner Jack Ravan.

In 2004, BAMI transitioned to BAMI-International (BAMI-I). BAMI-I is a non-profit corporation whose main purpose is to educate and assist those who have an interest in applying best buried asset management practices to extend the life and efficiency of their assets. In 2006, BAMI-I was selected for U.S. EPA Cooperative Agreement (CP 83 282901-1), which was completed in 2008. As a result, BAMI-I launched the Certificate of Training in Asset Management courses (CTAM 100-400). This program consists of four online courses plus a two-level certification program — Associate Water Asset Manager (AWAM) and Professional Water Asset Manager (PWAM)). So far, individuals from 16 countries have enrolled in the CTAM program.
