The Certified IT Asset Manager (CITAM) Course is aligned with the IAITAM Best Practices Library (IBPL). This course addresses each of the Key Process Areas (KPAs) identified within the IBPL and that when combined empowers an organisation and maximizes the value of their IT assets.

The core processes that encompass the ITAM Program will be reviewed and the pertinent projects that will assist the organisation in building a productive and profitable business unit will be addressed. The CITAM Course, intended to guide individuals within the profession and align the needs of the organisation with ITAM best practices for the benefit of the organisation, was originally developed by professional IT Asset Managers to codify a number of existing IAITAM professional development programs.

This hands-on course will allow professionals to review existing infrastructure, policies and processes and work from the existing model and plan a real-world IT Asset Management Program for the future - one that is applicable to the global work place and inclusive of a widely dynamic range of issues as well as properly managing IT assets across the enterprise.

The primary purpose of this course is to educate ITAM professionals to manage IT assets while aligning with the organisational business drivers that promote ROI, reduces risk and increases productivity. By attending this course the attendee will be able to understand and utilise the dependencies, relationships and benefits of the KPAs found within an effective IT Asset Management Program; specify and define the duties and responsibilities necessary to be an effective IT Asset Manager; as well as be able to obtain and display an understanding of the resources and commitment necessary to implement a fully functional IT Asset Management Program.
