Why study this course

There are so many ways that Hardware Asset Management can benefit an organisation. With the volatility of today’s economy and reduction of IT budgets, finding savings is more important than ever. Organisations that had never heard of IT Asset Management are now educating their staff and implementing business practices in order to maximise every dollar spent. The best measure of success for the Hardware Asset Manager is capturing these savings and showing the percentage of total IT hardware budget that was freed up to fund other projects.

All information contained within this course, as with all of International Association of Information Technology Asset Managers' (IAITAM) courses, has been created and designed as a 'how to' guideline for building an efficient and effective ITAM program for your organisation.

The Certified Hardware Asset Management Professional (CHAMP) course reviews the primary responsibilities in managing an organisation’s hardware assets and analyses the in-depth knowledge, operational knowledge, and competence required for this area. Focus areas include maintaining the lifecycle, tracking, security, and auditing of technology hardware assets.

This course is delivered via virtual instructor-led training (VILT).


This course prepares you for the 3-hour online IAITAM CHAMP examination. It consists of 100 questions, and a pass mark is achieved by attaining 85% or higher.

The exam is conducted online through the IAITAM education portal, within 14 days after completing the course. CHAMP Certification is achieved through APMG International.

Who is the course for?

This course is designed for those individuals with minimal to no experience in the field of Hardware Asset Management.

Course subjects

Designed to address the numerous issues plaguing professionals in managing hardware assets, the CHAMP course follows the lifecycle of IT hardware assets beyond the scope of the cradle-to-grave analogy and discusses the business practices that can best be used to manage those assets efficiently and cost-effectively. Emphasis is placed on identifying the policies that enhance lifecycle management. In general, policies are only effective if developed by a cross-section of the impacted departments, are reviewed frequently to remain current and are consistently communicated and enforced.

Probably one of the least developed processes for asset management in the past, disposal management has received a great deal of attention in the last few years, thanks to online auction sites, the growth of a secondary usage market and the EPA’s activities that are drawing attention to the environmental issues. The process for disposal begins with the determination that an asset is no longer of use to the organisation. Once this determination is made, there are a number of avenues to pursue and a number of pitfalls to avoid. As with any business issue, an analysis of the costs and benefits must be undertaken to determine the best choice for the corporation. It is recommended that the programs chosen for disposal be supported by policy due to the potential financial and public relations backlash from an environmental issue.

As with all IAITAM courses, CHAMP conveys the same primary goal of educating IT Asset Management professionals in effective asset management, automation, and centralisation best practices. This equates to a higher Return on Investment (ROI), compliance risk mitigation, and increased overall productivity.


There are no prerequisites, but knowledge of contracts and hardware lifecycle management is encouraged.
