Training program of “Bridge Inspectors” - An upcoming field with potential employment for over 2 lakh engineers

A major upcoming area with vast opportunities is Health Assessment of Bridges & structures on Roads & Highways in India. There are around 38 Lakh bridges & structures on the Roads in India, many over 40 years old and needing repairs & maintenance. 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.

Bridge inspectors evaluate bridge conditions to ensure public safety. Inspectors look for bridge deterioration and damage, and they make recommendations about necessary repairs. Besides, bridge inspection needs specialized knowledge about distress conditions and the use of specialized tools for testing & evaluation. 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".

We are pleased to announce that Level 1 (online program) of this course shall commence from 9th to 11th June, 2022. Level 1 shall cover General Features of Bridge Inspection. We invite you to join this program and also encourage your colleagues and associates to join. Engineers registered in National Register of PEs in ECI would earn CPD Points as applicable.

Course Director:  Shri N. K. Sinha, an eminent expert in the field. He is the former D.G. (Roads) in Ministry of Road Transport & Highways
He will be joined by other experts in the field of Bridge Engineering.
