Bridge and Culvert Inspection Visual Assessments course 7 – 8 May 2024 – Durban
ECSA CPD Service Provider: SP_035/2025
(PLEASE NOTE: This course is only available in ZAR)
This accredited course is aimed at all that are actively involved in bridge management from client bodies to consulting engineer personnel that have to do bridge or culvert inspections. The course is based on the TMH19 DER method for bridge and culvert inspections, which is used by national, provincial, and municipal authorities. The DER system of inspections is the compulsory inspection method to be used by all road authorities if they wish to access Treasury funding for maintenance of road structures. The course is open to all, but specifically aimed at those who want to do bridge and culvert inspections for state road authorities.
The course is also essential to those working in road authorities who manage a BMS or administer consultants that do bridge and culvert inspections for their authority.
Attendance of this course and passing the exam is one of the requirements of the Committee of Transport Officials’ (COTO) Structures Subcommittee to be accredited as a bridge or culvert inspector. All the requirements for accreditation as a bridge or culvert inspector are contained in TMH19 Part A, which can be downloaded from SANRAL’s website using the following link:
Please note that attendance of this course and passing the exam only does not result in accreditation, as candidates have to apply separately for accreditation and proof that they have the requisite qualifications, experience and meet all the requirements.
The course will cover:
- Introduction to Bridge Project Management
- The DER rating system
- Visual Assessment Guide
- Site visit and bridge calibration inspection and exam
Presenters: Dr. Paul Nordengen, Mr. Michael Roux and Peter Fenton
