The Certified Asset Mangement Assessor (CAMA) program was developed by SMRP and several international partners to assess an individual’s qualifications to be an auditor of asset management systems. CAMA is
- managed by WPiAM, a separate entity partly owned by SMRP.
- based on the ISO 55000-1 standard, Asset Management System Auditor/Assessor and the ISO 55000-5 standard, Conformity assessment — Requirements for bodies providing audit and certification of management systems — Part 5: Competence requirements for the certification of asset management systems.
- not intended primarily to assess an individual’s competence and understanding of maintenance and reliability or asset management topics; rather, the CAMA certification assesses an individual’s competence to be an auditor of asset management systems. This presumes a certain expertise with the asset management and maintenance and reliability subject matter.
