Upcoming e-Learning Courses:
Note to current users:
Ethics for Public Works Professionals (Coming in January 2018): This course is designed for individuals that are interested in exploring ethics, as it applies personally and professionally. This course provides practical advice on ethics and emphasizes the importance of ethical behavior in personal and professional interactions. It provides real-world examples, as well as advice in dealing with the non-technical aspects of our profession. CEUs: eligible for .1 CEUs/1 PDHs upon completion.
Ethics for Public Works Supervisors (Coming in January 2018): This course is designed for individuals that are interested in exploring ethics, as it applies to supervision and management. Ethics are complicated. Sometimes public works professionals are faced with difficult public policy choices that may stretch our ethical boundaries. Leading in the context of our own ethics is challenging enough, but leaders must also manage the ethics of others and discover how to create and maintain an ethical culture. Public works leaders must walk the talk, set the tone, hold themselves accountable, and strive to create a culture of openness, democracy, merit, and creativity. Only by exercising the principles of ethical leadership can we meet the challenges of the future and sustain the public’s trust in our decisions and stewardship of public resources. CEUs: eligible for .1 CEUs/1 PDHs upon completion.
APWA will be moving to a new learning management platform in November. This transition will allow us to consolidate several services and deliver our online learning (eLearning + webinars), utilizing one system to deliver our content. The user interface will be significantly improved to include a more dynamic look and feel – which will improve your overall learning experiences. To allow time to make this transition, the system will be unavailable Friday, November 17 - Sunday, November 19. We will be working diligently within the next two weeks to ensure that everything is up and running for you by Monday, November 20, 2017. To ensure a seamless transition, we strongly encourage current users to complete any courses that you have started before Thursday, November 16, 2017.
