Is This Course For Me?

This course is specifically designed to provide the student with a high level of understanding of Obsolescence Management in preparation for the two–part assessment that they will undertake on completion of the course. The 60 minute short-answer exam is taken during the final session of the course. Students subsequently produce a post course project which is submitted two months after course completion. Both assessments must be passed for the student to achieve Associate Level with the International Institution of Obsolescence Management.

For those looking to simply obtain an overview of Obsolescence Management, we do offer a One Day Awareness Course or check out our e-Learning Introduction to Obsolescence Management. 

If you are interested in the detail of managing Obsolescence but you do not wish to gain an IIOM certificate, our Obsolescence Management Practitioner Course is the one for you.

Course Outline

The course will explore the origins of obsolescence and what continues to drive the need for managing obsolescence risk. It will discuss the relevant International, NATO and British Standards and the corporate Obsolescence Management policies that have been published by major organisations.

This course is specifically designed to provide a student with a high level of Obsolescence Management knowledge, understanding and application to prepare them for the IIOM Associate examination and post-course project. The course includes the examination which the student will be expected to sit on completion of the instructional elements of the course.

Course Assessment

The course assessment will comprise of the following:

  • An Exam
  • A Course Project

The student must pass both of the above to be awarded an IIOM Certificate.

The Exam

The IIOM Certificate exam is a 60 minutes, invigilated examination, delivered at the end of the course. 
The exam is ‘open book’, which means that printed reference materials, technology and dictionaries can be used for reference. 
It comprises 60 multiple-choice questions.  To pass the exam, the students will be assessed on the basis of achieving an overall score of 80%.

Obsolescence Management Certificate Topics

  • OM1 – Principles of Obsolescence Management
  • OM2 – Obsolescence Management Policy, Strategy & Planning 
  • OM3 – Obsolescence Contracting, Performance, Cost Modelling 
  • OM4 – Obsolescence Risk – assessment, mitigation and resolution 
  • OM5 – Obsolescence Management Plan

Course Project
A course project will also be required to be completed by students prior to an IIOM Certificate being awarded.
The course project will focus on the development of an Obsolescence Management Pan (OMP).
During the course, there is a group project that will allow the students to explore and identify the main elements which comprise a compliant OMP against IEC62402 and many customer policies.
The Course Project will further expand on this learning and will require each student to develop an OMP.
Each student will have to develop a plan that covers all the main elements of a proactive OM capability.   
A timescale of two months will be given to complete and return the Course Project.
