Certified Asset Integrity Professional (CAIP)

This training will provide participants with a comprehensive comprehension of the theory and practice of implementing asset integrity safeguards to protect assets, people, and the environment.

Asset integrity management (AIM) concentrates on safety, environmental protection, dependability, regulatory compliance, and data management as its core components. An effective Asset Integrity program provides assurance that a facility’s equipment and assets are designed, fabricated, procured, installed, and maintained for the life of the operation in accordance with their intended application.

Certification Program Objectives: 

  • Investigate the fundamental Assets Integrity Management Modules.
  • Clarify the organizational interfaces, responsibilities, and duties of the officers involved in the creation, implementation, and rollout of AIMS.
  • Learn about the AIMS accomplishments of significant operators and compare their asset integrity management strategies with those of best-in-class operators.
  • Enhance employee participation, empowerment, and leadership, as well as communications and cross-disciplinary teamwork, to assure the success of AIMS.
  • Recognize the various control methods and describe how successful mitigation can reduce risk exposure and be utilized to meet the requirements of aging facilities for life extension.

Certifying Examination:

  • To be certified as CAIP, student should take up a 1.5 hours exam at the designated examination centers.
  • The qualifying exam would consist of 50 multiple choice questions, testing core certification modules.
  • Professionals with relevant experience and other qualifying criteria may be exempted from the examination.

Materials Provided:

  • Presentation slides
  • Study references


Upon successful completion of the CAIP training, participants will receive a “Certified Asset Integrity Professional” certificate.
