Staff within Engineering in the private and public sector experiences a shortage of functionaries with basic management skills to address problems relating to decision making and operational practices for infrastructure system management.
Due to political realities such as staff profile transformation and redress, both the private and public sectors require trained and capacitated staff to address the challenges of infrastructure systems management. It includes both formally employed qualified and non-qualified employees. The lack of formal basic knowledge of engineering principles underlying infrastructure systems management is one of the main reasons for infrastructure failure and dysfunctionality (inclusive of bulk and reticulation services).
In the process limited knowledge related to obligations and implications in terms of the applicable policy and legislative framework pertaining to infrastructure is evident. This short course will focus on capacity building of participants and employees in basic infrastructure, technological and financial management principles in managing infrastructure systems.
This short course aims to equip public sector and private sector staff (contractors and developers) who provide services to the public sector with the basic managerial skills in engineering infrastructure management.
Attendance of the course is approved by ECSA for 4 CPD Points (ENG-CEE-0000212-S-2019)
