The Foundation level course and certification is step 1 of the APMG PPP Certification Program® which aims to foster a common minimum level of knowledge and understanding amongst individuals working on PPPs or those interested in learning about PPPs, regardless of discipline or sector. APMG awards the CP3P® credential to individuals who successfully pass the three examinations: (1) Foundation and Overview Stage, (2) Preparation Stage, and (3) Execution Stage.
Pavement Management systems have been designed to provide information on the functional and structural condition of roads so that road owners can offer a smooth and safe ride to road users at the lowest possible cost. They also provide reliable information to decision makers about the condition of the road network for maintenance and rehabilitation planning and funding. However, the problem with PMS systems has traditionally been that they have supported reactive maintenance whereby the road is repaired by mainly standard methods after a specified amount of visible damage has occurred on the pavement.
The main goal of this online training is to introduce the fundamentals of practical data science relevant to transportation and roadway experts. Various aspects, such as the use of different data processing tools, data visualization, data mining and artificial intelligence will be discussed through online hands-on tutorials.
The course will provide key methods, tools, and techniques used by best in class companies and practitioners in the construction supervision industry. The course is FIDIC focused and covers the roles and responsibilities of The Engineer, contract administration, and the dispute resolution process as prescribed by FIDIC.
The Balkan region is witnessing a rapid uptake in next-generation road charging programs, such as free-flow tolling for Heavy Goods Vehicles. The technologies supporting road charging systems have made tremendous progress over the past decade, and today developing and implementing a local or national solution presents fewer risks than was the case 10-15 years ago.
The Seminar will feature a program of presentations and discussions about performance-based contracts and how they can help road agencies meet their desired outcomes. Participants will engage in working groups with experts who are actively involved in maintenance contracting and asset management to discuss the application of best practices under different country conditions.
This training course is designed to provide a comprehensive knowledge of the basic concepts and recent advances related to pavement design, analysis and construction. Participants will learn about recent developments in designing and maintaining sustainable pavements. They will be guided through various interactive course modules to develop skills and knowledge to employ standard guidelines and specifications related to both flexible and rigid pavements. Throughout this course, the sustainability considerations for design and construction of pavements will be discussed. Innovations and advances in pavement engineering with regards to design, analysis and construction, will also be addressed through dedicated modules for each topic. A special focus will be on Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) issues, long-term performance, reducing environmental impacts and a maximizing the socio economic outcomes.
