Transparent IT Asset Management Credentialing
For the first time in the IT asset management training industry, practitioners and credential candidates can gain access to print resources covering their credential programs as well as many of the competency-based training sessions. The Institute is the only professional credentialing group in our industry to deliver data directly to you. Available course resources include SAM, ITAM, TAM, TPM, Negotiations, and more:
- Competency Workbooks
- Credential Road Maps & Credential Handbooks
- Test Preparation Handbooks
- And more...
IT Asset Management Competency Workbooks
The Institute has developed multiple online courses in the competencies detailed in the Guide to the Technology Asset Management Body of Knowledge (TAMBOK). Participants have the option of taking their own notes or downloading these workbooks as note taking guidelines. The workbooks also serve as study guides for the credential exams in software & copyright compliance assurance (SCCA), software asset management (SAM), information technology asset management (ITAM / TAM), and IT portfolio management (ITPM).
Technology Asset Management Credentialing Road Maps
The practitioner members of The Institute have consistently commented that a majority of certifications and training programs in the IT asset management fields are frequently ad hoc and/or proprietary in nature. Traditionally, course participants have not received certification support materials other than a minimized course notebook when they actually attend a one to three day training session. The Institute provides each credential candidate with their own road map to their chosen credential. The road map includes a review of their existing certificate qualifications charted against the requirements as documented in the Credential Requirements Handbook. With The Institute for Technology Asset Management you always know where you stand in your credential and professional development evolution.
SCCA, SAM, & TAM / ITAM Test Preparation Handbooks
Prior to The Institute, IT asset management-related certifications consisted of attending a short course and taking an abbreviated memorization test before leaving the site. This narrow scope of competency quiz has been replaced by the need for a comprehensive documentation of credential credibility. The Institute provides study guides for each of its credential programs so practitioners and credential candidates know precisely what to expect. Guides include content covering Software & Copyright Compliance Assurance (SCCA), Software Asset Management (SAM), and Information Technology Asset Management (TAM / ITAM)
(An added bonus is that those individuals with test anxiety finally have a step-by-step study program to follow--relieving a significant amount of frustration from the process.)
