The Certificate of Advanced Study (CAS) is earned by studying two areas of information technology asset management (ITAM). Advanced courses are built around the world class curriculum developed by the International Association of Information Technology Asset Managers.
The certificate can be earned by completing two courses of advanced study through the online platform. Courses contain a series of video lectures, access to full time instructors as needed, review of ITAM concepts, and complete with a self-evaluation exercise that both brings the materials together, and provides immediate business value for you and your organization.

The Compliance and Legislation Advanced Course of Study is based on the information and practices contained in the IAITAM Best Practice Library (IBPL) Compliance and Legislation Volume 8 that shows how Compliance and Legislation is the focal point for risk avoidance and audit response processes.
Compliance is the act and process of adhering to established legislative and regulatory guidelines. As such, compliance actions must be planned and executed according to those guidelines. Guidelines cover a wide spectrum that can range anywhere from Federal mandates to local and organizational standards.
In this Advanced Course you will learn that compliance is achievable and can be maintained. We will also address specific forms of compliance such as: contractual, operational and regulatory, all of which carry strong implications for business, legal and financial risk; and the level of organizational ability necessary to manage that risk.

Each course has an online discussion component guided by course instructors where learners share insights and opinions relative to the course material. Learners have the opportunity to gain significantly from the vast experiences of the instructors and other professionals. Some form lasting friendships that benefit both parties professionally.
Advanced study programs are offered online and offer learners:
