Why CPEE Short Courses Work

Enhancing your specialist knowledge and skills means you effectively increase your value and worth, becoming an engineer with "added value" in an industry sector already struggling to recruit and retain those with experience and knowledge who are in short supply.

In addition, with the ageing workforce leading to many early and normal retirements, it all adds up to quality engineers and technical personnel being in short supply and much sought after.

Those who continue to improve their capabilities will find that they have greater likelihood of improving their standing and position with their current employer, or make themselves a much more attractive proposition for alternate employment.

Increasing Your Future Worth – improving your knowledge and skill set is what CPEE specialist topic short courses provide via targeted learning. Excellent feedback from both employers, and the participants, indicate the quality and practical content is of the highest level.

The CPEE Short Course Program offers, throughout Australia, up to date content presented by industry expert practitioners. Courses are also offered in Regional centres, complimenting the Capital city staging.

The subject range provides for a broader mix of road, pavement engineering and construction subjects to suit the delegates' background as well as future interests and career development.


 How They Work

The one, two and three day Short Courses that CPEE offer are on a variety of specialised Road and Pavement topics. These practical hands on workshops are conducted face-to-face in a classroom setup. Courses are run in various locations around Australia in both capital cities and larger regional centres. Generally Short Courses will begin at 8.30am in the morning with registration and networking available from 8.15am. The courses usually wrap up each day between 4:30-5.00pm.  Courses such as the 'Road and Public Lighting workshop' also include a twilight/night site visit and therefore will finish at a later time. 

On the second day delegates receive a delegate advisory note approximately one week before the course with details this including final confirmation of the venue, speaker program and any equipment requirements for the course.  Information relating to amenities may be circulated as and if required.

All CPEE courses are fully catered with tea and coffee on arrival, morning and afternoon tea, and lunch.  These breaks provide not only a good meal but are great times for networking with like-minded individuals.

Courses requiring the use of computers and are held at specialised venues to enable the provision of this equipment as is the case with the CIRCLY workshops.  Personal computers are not required at any courses unless otherwise stated.

Delegates are provided a Delegate Pack including comprehensive course notes and power point presentation, and Certificate of Attendance on the day of the course.  As the technical content of CPEE short courses is based on relevant CPEE postgraduate distance learning study units, facilitated and presented by recognised practitioners in the field, the number of hours involved should be fully acceptable toward Continuing Professional Development (CPD) standing. CPEE short courses are supported by Austroads, APESMA, Chifley Business School, AustStab, IPWEA and ASCP and State and Territory Road Authorities.

A downloadable course registration form can be found on the short course program page against each course.
