CNAM’s renowned Asset Management Awareness Course – New and Improved for 2020!

Throughout the pandemic, we’ve been working with our committees, municipal advisors, and experts to update and improve on CNAM’s renowned Asset Management (AM) Awareness Course. It’s now ready for your registration and we’re excited to welcome you online. One of the many improvements we have implemented has been the development of several new interactive exercises and a new parallel workbook to reinforce what participants learn from the sessions. In order to cover the wealth of content we have created, the course has also been extended in length to 9 hours (~1.5 days) and split into three separate online modules, 3 hours each, delivered virtually so you can pace yourself through the training.

Over the last two years, the AM Awareness Course has been delivered to over 300 municipal staff and elected officials, both virtually and in-person. Participants overwhelmingly report strong satisfaction with the course and a higher understanding of asset management practices.  Here is some of the feedback we have received:

“I attended CNAM’s 1-day AM Awareness Workshop and found it to be informative, educational and extremely helpful.”


“The 1-day Asset Management Awareness Workshop offered by CNAM proved very applicable to our organization. While a number of our City staff have previously participated in various Asset Management training opportunities over the past year, this particular Workshop went a long way to tying it all together for us. The team were well informed in the subject matter, presented the information in a very professional manner and maintained a pace that kept everyone’s interest. I would recommend this workshop for any staff member or elected official wanting to become better informed about sound asset management practices.”

In order to maintain an effective learning environment in each of our courses, attendance will be restricted, so register now!

And remember, if you book now, you unlock discounted rates for 2020 and 2021 (expires on Dec 31, 2020) and allow your registration to be transferrable to a different date or staff member within your organization.

Since these courses are virtual, you can access them from anywhere! This makes CNAM courses accessible for all, including those in many rural and remote locations. The virtual format is safe and saves you time and money on travel, hotel and airfare!  Each course is recorded and is available for participants a full month after the session so you can refer, replay, and remind.

The AM Awareness Course is specifically tailored for Canadian communities and municipalities of all sizes, locations, or progress with asset management. The sessions are appropriate for Elected Officials and Municipal / Community / Organization Staff of all levels. Participants will:

  • Gain a better understanding of what asset management is,
  • Learn why AM should be undertaken and the benefits to your community, and;
  • what AM entails and how to begin implementation with easy, tangible steps.

Professional Development Certificates (Valid for 9 CEC/PDH hours towards professional development) will be provided upon completion of the course and associated FCM Activity Survey.

Hosting the Workshop at your organization

Like this course but looking for a private event with this content for your organization, association or agency?  We can help with that too.  CNAM’s courses can be delivered ‘on-demand’ and customized for your organization / staff / members.  We’ve done this for a number of members and partners over the years, including groups from the Canadian Association of Municipal Administrators, the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, and international organizations like the State Department of Michigan. Presently, all courses are being held virtually, however we hope to make in-person events available again when the health and safety of our participants can be assured.  For more information and pricing on custom courses, please email


This initiative is offered through the Municipal Asset Management Program (MAMP), which is delivered by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) and funded by the Government of Canada.
