IT Asset Management Solutions (ITAMS), one of the UK’s longest established, vendor independent, IT and software asset management services provider today announced the launch of the first IAITAM (International Association of Information Technology Managers) Authorised Training Organisation in the UK.

From autumn 2013, ITAMS’ newly authorised IAITAM Training Organisation will initially provide access to two key training courses deemed invaluable to both individuals and organisations involved in software and hardware asset management.

The IAITAM Certified Hardware Asset Management Professional (CHAMP) course which follows the lifecycle of IT hardware assets, identifies the policies that enhance lifecycle management and discusses the business practices that can best be used to manage those assets efficiently and cost-effectively; and the IAITAM Certified Software Asset Manager (CSAM) course which provides a foundation for managing software assets, from software piracy and compliance issues, to legislation and organisational challenges.

Paul Sheehan, ITAMS’ Managing Partner comments, “Very few training courses such as those developed by IAITAM offer advanced training with formal certification that is globally recognised in the IT and Software Asset Management sphere. Our partnership with IAITAM will finally enable UK based organisations to access an already well-established brand and body of expertise”.

Tim LaFleur, Marketing & Channel Director adds, “We at IAITAM are very thrilled to have ITAMS on board as the first UK authorised training organisation to teach our courseware and proliferate the message and need for IT Asset Management. We are very confident in ITAMS’ trainers to deliver the IAITAM courseware to the high standards we expect from all our authorised training organisations”.

He continues, “IAITAM and ITAMS share more than a common name, both possessing a common vision to help organisations control cost, mitigate risk and drive organisational wide efficiencies through an all-encompassing approach that starts and ends with the proper management of IT assets.“
