International Public Works Collaboration Brings Asset Management Training to North America

The American Public Works Association (APWA), Canadian Public Works Association (CPWA) and the Institute of Public Works Engineering Australasia (IPWEA) have launched the second round of their collaborative infrastructure management program.

“Globally, the condition of our infrastructure is in decline and we need to practice asset management to work proactively toward solutions,” said APWA President Ron Calkins, PE, PWLF. “APWA is supporting the delivery of the IPWEA Professional Certificate in Asset Management Planning to our Canadian members.”

“Capacity building in municipal asset management is a priority for the Government of Canada,” said CPWA President Andrew Stevenson. “CPWA recognized this need and has been working with IPWEA’s training arm, NAMS Canada, to bring its 20 years of experience in sustainable asset management to the municipal and public works infrastructure sectors in Canada.”

The Professional Certificate in Asset Management Planning is delivered as eight modules over 10 weeks. This second course targeting a North American audience commences September 13, 2017, and registration is now open.
