Enrolment is now open for Australia’s only online, industry designed qualification course in asset management.

The Graduate Certificate in Asset Management is being offered from Semester 1, 2021, by the Centre for Pavement Engineering Education (CPEE), the Australian road industry’s not-for-profit provider of accredited training.

The comprehensive course is aimed at both aspiring asset managers and those who already work in the space but want to sharpen and formalise their skills.

“Given its importance, asset management has been relatively under-resourced in terms of education and formal qualification opportunities in Australia,” says CPEE CEO Ray Farrelly.

“This new course fills the gap – not just for professionals working in roads, but across a broad range of physical infrastructure assets in local and state government and the private sector.

“It delivers a formal qualification and practical, transferrable skills that are in demand right across Australia and around the world.”

The core units of the new online course cover the principles of asset management and the economics of financial management.

Participants can choose two additional elective units from a suite of four, comprising road asset management, sustainable physical infrastructure, project management elements, and the principles, management and risks of contracts.

“The beauty of our online courses is that they offer the flexibility to study when and where it fits around your other commitments,” Mr Farrelly says.

The Graduate Certificate in Asset Management has been developed with the support and input of CPEE partners’ Austroads and the Australian Asphalt Pavement Association (AAPA), and is accredited by the Federal Government’s Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA).
