Site inspections can be one of the most rewarding, yet challenging, aspects of an engineer’s duties. On-site, abstract documentation and project processes are translated into physical form.
To be a successful inspection engineer, you need to be conscious of your responsibilities and adopt a methodological approach to responding to what happens on-site. You also need to maintain high standards of safety, design and compliance, and understand how to work towards the best outcome for all parties.
This course develops a general understanding of conducting a site inspection, and the on-site processes and key relationships involved. You’ll learn:
- roles and responsibilities of site inspection engineers
- contractual obligations and professional responsibilities around certification
- strategies to communicate with on-site stakeholders including builders, construction managers and tradespeople
- practical tips to solve problems when dealing with complexities and unfamiliar conditions on-site
This course is delivered in partnership with Office of the NSW Building Commissioner.
