Emerging opportunities in Bridge Inspections - Special Program for Training as “Bridge Inspectors”

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 in the Level 1 (online training program) of this course which was run in 3 batches, the last of which concluded on 27th August, 2022.  Due to popular demand, the course is being offered now on YouTube as well.

We invite you to nominate your engineers to the Level 1. Link to our YouTube offering of the program is given below:
