CO Online Training | Intermediate Asset Management for Wastewater Systems
Session 1: Tuesday, April 4, 2023
Session 2: Thursday, April 6, 2023
This two-part training focuses on using Asset Management principles for data-informed decision-making. Each live virtual session will be two hours long.
Description: With limited revenues, aging infrastructure, and regulatory obligations to meet, a comprehensive approach to managing your wastewater system is vital. This training begins by covering Asset Management’s core components, and the overall Asset Management thought process before focusing more specifically on the practical application of asset management concepts for data-informed decision-making using real-world examples. Session 1 will focus on developing and using goals to frame operations and decision-making while using robust asset data and criticality analysis to make good decisions. Session 2 digs deeper into condition and criticality (or risk) analysis, focusing on data collection and visualization tools.
