Join Houston Metro in A55K Training

We learned that some of the Houston Metro team is taking the AJAG ALN A55K Professional Certification training course to focus their asset management efforts. Consider having your team get on the same asset management page with a 2-week web course focused on ISO 55000/1/2. Your team will share the same language and be aligned in concept and in practice when advancing your outcomes with a structured approach to asset management.
