    Hi Fellow IPWEA Members

    I am relatively new to Asset Management and am looking at getting some formal qualifications.

    I dont have an Engineering degree, but I have developed a taste for asset management

    I have already pencilled in the IPWEA Online Professional Certificate Asset Management Planning Infrastructure as one of the key course id like to complete.  But am hoping everyone here could assist with other recommendations.

    Any help would be much appreciated

    I recently completed a Grad Cert in AM through University of Tasmania and CPEE – I think this is largely well respected J Plus it's all distance learning!!

    ​I highly recommend the BACHELOR OF ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY (PROFESSIONAL HONOURS IN INFRASTRUCTURE ASSET MANAGEMENT) that is delivered through Centre for Pavement Engineering Education in partnership with University of Tasmania.  There is an option to exit early with a Graduate Certificate in Infrastucture Asset Management.  You can find out more information at Infrastructure Asset Management

    Hi,
    I have a engineers australia accredited civil engineering degree and masters in Construction management.I am looking for professional upgrade in asset management.The graduate certificate degree in University of Tasmania looks elaborate but the professional certificate by Ipwea only starts in March.I think for the professionals,the fees and course structure both matters.On top of that,distance learning will not affect our regular jobs.I am also exploring options currently.

    I also highly recommending "BACHELOR OF ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY "(PROFESSIONAL HONOURS IN INFRASTRUCTURE ASSET MANAGEMENT) as it gives good global understanding and clarity of Infrastructure AM.

    This course assist to give good understanding of fundamentals of AM as it vastly misinterpreted based on background of practitioners who comes from various disciplinarians.

    Hi Quenten

    The IPWEA online Professional Certificate Asset Management Planning is an excellent starting point for your journey in asset management and has a large enrolment both in Australia and abroad. It is delivered by live webinars, how to videos, discussion forums and assignments and can be undertaken from work and/or home. At the conclusion you will have prepared a draft asset management plan for one of your assets.

    IPWEA is also currently preparing a new Practice Note with the working title of "AM101". It is being developed to assist people with little or no knowledge of AM to understand the basics and will be supported by a rollout training package planned to commence in the first half of 2018. Depending on your current knowledge base this may be the better first step.

    I am happy to discuss with you both these and other options or needs. I may be contacted on 0408 941 518
