MUNICIPAL ASSET MANAGEMENT PROGRAM
AWARENESS BUILDING AND BASIC TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE
FOR SMALL URBAN AND RURAL MUNICIPALITIES IN SASKATCHEWAN
Asset Management Saskatchewan is pleased to announce it has been selected to work with municipalities in their efforts to improve infrastructure decisions through stronger asset management practices.
Asset Management Saskatchewan is offering a range of training opportunities including in-person workshops on asset management planning and decision-making and webinar series on the foundations of asset management. AM-SK is also developing online training and a virtual learning tool in order to reach more municipalities.
This initiative is offered through the Municipal Asset Management Program, which is delivered by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities and funded by the Government of Canada.

AM-SK will be hosting the online NAMS Canada training workshops. NAMS is a proven training program designed specifically for municipal government employees to integrate the efforts of the disciplines of public works, finance, administration and political leaders. The subsidized price is $499 + GST (Regular Price is $1650) and it includes a 1- year subscription and waived set up fees to the NAMS+ templates and modelling tools ($1500 value).

Due to uncertainty around COVID-19 these face to face workshops are tentative. We are keen to make them happen, but want to ensure they're safe! On one hand we'll be adhering to Provincial Health Guidelines to determine if this is possible, on the other we need to know if anyone is interested in joining us.
If you are interested in attending one of the face to face workshops please click the button below to let us know.

Renew your NAMS+ subscription by registering and paying for one of our workshops instead of paying the renewal invoice active July 1, 2021 - June 30, 2022. This will allow you to renew and attend further training rather than just renewing.
Immediately have access to 1:1 support from NAMS Canada on the NAMS+ Tools and Templates
Offer additional, or refresh previous, training for your asset management team. Online and tentative in person courses this fall.
Dates and locations include:
Saskatoon - October 5-7, 2021,

Cost is $499/person +GST. ($523.95 total)
Some terms and conditions apply.
No Refunds - Due to the fact that subscriptions will be active from July 1 onward, with access to 1:1 support we will not be in a position to offer refunds.
The online training opportunity is the only option we can guarantee due to COVID and ongoing uncertainty related to in person training
If in person training is endorsed by provincial health guidelines, but demand is insufficient to offer training in both Saskatoon and Regina - registrations from the course with the lower enrollment will be offered the option to join in the other location or to take the course online.
If you cannot attend the training, we would be pleased to accommodate substitutions from your organization only.
Any questions please contact us at 1 (306) 500-7868 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to seeing you at our upcoming trainings and hope you take advantage of this offer.
