    FAQs

    I’m new to the industry will this be too complex for me?

    No, the course has been designed to introduce people to asset management and suggest ways to implement structural inspection regimes

    I work in contracting, is this the right course for me?

    Yes, this course gives valuable information about the latest thinking in structural management of minor structures (lighting columns, traffic signs, floodlighting poles and similar supports). So, whether you are a contractor, testing company, asset manager or asset owner this course will give you valuable information.

    Is this just for highways assets?

    No, though it does focus on highway assets, the principles are designed to be used in other sectors such as, retail, commercial, transportation and education establishments where supports are used for lighting, signs, CCTV or similar equipment.

    Is this not just an update of Technical report 22 Managing a Vital asset; Lighting Supports?

    No, this document supersedes TR22. TR22 was quite specific in suggesting the way the structural management of assets was carried out and was seen as a ‘highways’ document. ATOMS is a risk based approach, allowing asset owners to manage their assets whatever resources they have by enabling them to understand the condition of assets and manage the risk by channelling resources where it will have the greatest impact.
