ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--APMG-International will begin accrediting training organizations to deliver the IAITAM Courseware effective immediately. This announcement was made today at IAITAM’s Annual Fall ACE Conference by Dr. Barbara Rembiesa, CEO of IAITAM, to the attendees. This partnership will allow wide spread adoption of the IAITAM Courseware and meet the growing demand for IT Asset Management Training.
“With ITIL being so wide spread and adopted globally, now having the authority in IT Asset Management in IAITAM to compliment ITIL and Cobit 5 training will allow us to have the most robust IT Management offerings to bring to training organizations.”
“IAITAM is very excited about making this move to allow training organizations around the globe to start teaching the IAITAM Courseware. One of many benefits of this partnership is the additional focus IAITAM will garner to create new and critical content initiatives for the profession,” said Dr. Rembiesa. “Finding an organization such as APMG-International, which shares the same business philosophy and excellent reputation as IAITAM, made making this move easy.”
For APMG-International, the IAITAM Courseware is a natural fit due to the synergies that exist between the IAITAM Courseware and the other best practices that APMG has under its umbrella, most notably ITIL® and Cobit® 5. “With the speed at which technology changes we are excited to have a best practice in IAITAM that focuses on the technical aspects of IT as well as business practices to manage that IT across the entire organization,” said Richard Pharro, CEO, APMG-International. “With ITIL being so wide spread and adopted globally, now having the authority in IT Asset Management in IAITAM to compliment ITIL and Cobit 5 training will allow us to have the most robust IT Management offerings to bring to training organizations.”
During Dr. Rembiesa’s remarks to the audience she said:
“IT Asset Management has grown to the point where global wide spread adoption is eminent. The demand for the IAITAM certification is such that it forced IAITAM to make a decision. We had two choices, to become a training organization or an organization that will continue to lead the profession with expert and practical content and strong and innovative leadership. IAITAM always has been, and will continue to be, thought leaders for the IT Asset Management professions. In partnering with APMG we brought two world class reputations and skillsets to work together to set the course for how IT Asset Management will be taught and viewed moving into the future.”
APMG-International CEO Richard Pharro states, “Expert IT Asset Management is essential for any organization. APMG was impressed with the levels of professionalism and support that IAITAM gives its members. We are delighted to join forces with an organization whose objectives for raising skills and competency are similar to ours. APMG’s existing global network of Accredited Training Organizations (ATOs) plus IAITAM’s leadership on developing personnel who work in this important area, will together make a significant difference to IT Asset Managers everywhere.”
