NV Online Training | Intermediate Asset Management for Wastewater Systems
Session 1: Tuesday, February 28, 2023
Session 2: Thursday, March 2, 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 with a focus on data collection and visualization tools.
- Understanding how the practical implementation of asset management core components benefits wastewater systems dealing with aging infrastructure
