WPiAM's Goal And Mission For Certified Asset Management

WPiAM is a worldwide partnership of national non-profit professional associations that came together at the end of 2014 to help people and organisations develop, test, and get recognised for their skills in Certified Asset Management, which is good for their members and the world as a whole.

The WPiAM has three main goals, which are:

1. Maintain a list of questions and answers that can be used to certify ISO55001 auditors and assessors as having the minimum knowledge and understanding of asset management;

2. Be a global certifying body for employees in the market; and

3. Integrity, working together, and duty to the public should be shown.

The differences between WPiAM and the GFMAM have been laid out in a statement made by WPiAM.

World Partner In Asset Management

WPiAM was started in 2014 to set up the CAMA Exam. It is now an Australia-registered non-profit organisation. The current members come from the GFMAM, but in the future, other organisations that meet the WPiAM selection criteria could join as well. The WPiAM is run by a Board of five Directors who are chosen by the members and a Management Company that is in charge of running the CAMA exam, the Global Certification Scheme, and other administrative tasks.

Vision:

Credentials in Certified Asset Management that are known all over the world.

Mission:

WPiAM is a worldwide partnership of non-profit professional organisations from around the world that came together at the end of 2014 to help people and organisations learn, test, and prove their competence in Asset Management.

Objective:

  • Keep a database of questions and answers that can be used to certify that ISO55001 auditors and assessors know and understand asset management at a minimum level.
  • Be a global certifying body for employees in the market; and
  • Show that you care about being honest, working with others, and doing your job for the public.

Global Forum on Maintenance & Asset Management (GFMAM)

The GFMAM is a non-profit group that was started in Switzerland in May 2010. In October 2017, it was changed to a non-profit corporation under the laws of Canada. All of the GFMAM's members are non-profit organisations that are run by the whole membership. They are all legally set up in the areas where they work, have a large number of members from a wide range of the industry they represent, and have the same goals and values as the GFMAM.

Vision:

To be a global community that gives maintenance and asset management communities direction.

Mission:

To promote and improve the professions of maintenance and asset management by working together on knowledge, standards, and practices.

Objective:

  • To bring the Maintenance and Asset Management community together, promote it, and make it stronger all over the world.
  • To help groups or organisations get started and grow whose goals are focused on maintenance and/or asset management.
  • To make it easier for maintenance and asset management knowledge and practices to be shared and aligned.
  • To give member organisations more credibility by making the Global Forum more well-known.
