Everything you need to know about digital badges...

WHAT
IPWEA NZ has augmented its suite of Asset Management training with online asset management training in the form of digital badges, to respond to the changing needs of learners and public works professionals. Micro-credentials are small, stand-alone credentials that certify the achievement of specific skills and knowledge, and can be completed quickly, and importantly for many, on the job. New Zealand's micro-credentials are fast becoming the industry standard across Aotearoa, the Pacific and internationally. Our digital badges are designed to fit in conveniently with your life, to enable you to grow and advance a successful career in the infrastructure and public works sector, including:

Set of asset management foundation badges


What qualification is awarded with an IPWEA NZ Digital Badge?

Each IPWEA NZ digital badge is a short online course which is practitioner based and focused. We award you with a digital badge upon successful completion of each online course. A digital badge is a stand-alone micro-credential. Successful candidates may attach their badge to their CVs and online profiles.


WHY

We all need to freshen up our skills from time to time. When it comes to training people to get the skills we need in the workforce: times, they are a-changin'.
The government has recognised that our tertiary education system is not delivering the needed vocational skills and proposed an overhaul. Recognition of skills and competencies is becoming increasingly important, and increasingly easier to do. Digital badges are proliferating, especially in the technology sector.


HOW

Our first online courses cover the whole IIMM curriculum at the aware and basic level of maturity.

IPWEA NZ digital badges are delivered 100% online, with each course open for 30 days to complete, to suit your pace. Each badge is designed to take between 2 - 4 hours.

We use the IIMM framework and Asset Management Basics handbook to introduce Asset Management principles and key concepts to managers and staff who are new to the process. This is the first badge in a series of digital badges we are developing on our microcredentials journey to cover the spectrum of asset management skills and competencies.

It is expected to take between 2-4 hours to complete online, with progress saved after each completed section so you can come back to it later.

We have industry experts, like Ross Waugh, lending their experiences to provide up to date content and real world case studies.

Throughout the learning, you can interact with others completing the same workshop if you choose to do so, via the iQualify chat feature. So this is not only a learning process, but also a networking opportunity.

Multi-modal

The online courses use a variety of formats, including video, quizzes and reading, to suit your learning style.



  • Those who are new to managing infrastructure assets or those who want to align their understanding of asset management with the IIMM.
  • Students or recent graduates in any profession who are interested in this area.

Non- members: $195 +GST
Members: $175.50 +GST

You will have 1 month to complete each course.
