As you are aware that there are a vast number of Bridges & Culverts in India, many over 40 years old. An estimated 5 lakh of them require inspections & over 2 lakh need minor repairs every year. The growing number of collapses & major life threatening faults add to the urgency of Bridge inspection initiatives. At present this responsibility is that of serving departmental engineers. However, due to high pressures in many other departmental works, their focus on inspection of bridges becomes very limited and that leaves a demand gap in the cadre of “Bridge Inspectors”. In recent years the task is being offloaded to the Private Sector too. The estimated number is a need for 2 lakh bridge inspectors & numerous consultancies & contracts for R&R.
As a part of CIDC’s mandate to provide skilling and up-skilling in the field of construction/ infrastructure and looking at the huge manpower requirement in health assessment of bridges, CIDC has launched a three-module (3 levels) training program for “Bridge Inspectors”.
There was an overwhelming response from the government departments, industry, consultants, professional engineers and academia who have undergone training in the First batch of Level 1 (online program) of this course held from 9th to 11th June, 2022 & form 14th to 16th July, 2022, respectively. Due to popular demand, the course is being offered again.
Looking at the gravity of the issue, we would like you and your officers also to join this program, therefore, we are pleased to announce training of Third batch of Level 1 (online program) of this course which is being conducted from 25th to 27th August, 2022. Level 1 covers General Features of Bridge Inspection. Participants who registered for First & Second Batch can attend again on a Complimentary basis. Dates for Level 2 shall be announced shortly.
We invite you to nominate your engineers to the third batch of Level 1. Link to our invitation & brochure are given below.
