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 (Draft) DER method for bridge and culvert inspections, which is used by national, provincial, and municipal authorities. The DER rating system is the compulsory inspection method used by all road authorities if they wish access Treasury funding for maintenance of road structures. The course is open to all, but specifically aimed at those who have made bridges and culverts their area of expertise and who do work for the state.
The course is also essential to road authority representatives who administer consultants that do the inspections for their authority.
