The Certificate of Advanced Study (CAS) is earned by studying two areas of information technology asset management (ITAM). Advanced study 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 Financial Management Advanced Course of Study is based on the information and practices contained in the IAITAM Best Practice Library (IBPL) Financial Management volume 7 which shows that Financial Management practices encompass not only the Asset Management program, it also affects an entire organizational enterprise.
Financial IT Asset Management is the backbone to savings within an IT Asset Management program. From budgeting to invoice reconciliation, savings opportunities are abundant and waiting to be found in places that include operationally recurring functions such as: Billing, Chargeback, Forecasting, Financial Audit Preparation, Budgeting, Fixed Asset and Invoice Reconciliation.
In this Advanced Course you will learn that the Financial IT Asset Management discipline must support a strategic view of IT spending, which in turn must support the overall growth of the enterprise. Effective financial Management will also produce baseline information on spending which will enable you to quantify savings as found during the processes of IT Financial Management practices.
