  • Develop Knowledge: Develop AM Champions who understand and promote the value of asset management aligned with the five topics in the MIC Asset Management Readiness Scale (AMRS) – gov/MIC – Readiness Assessment Scale Tab
  • Establish Community: Establish a community of AM champions to seed peer relationships and build a network of asset management leaders across the state and across infrastructure

The AM Champion Program is a fast-paced and interactive training curriculum that combines asynchronous education, facilitated discussion, peer interactions, and industry learning into a professional certification from the MIC.

The program will run from April through June 2022 and will require approximately 25 hours to complete
