Enhancing the quality of life for all Queensland communities

Bridges and other structures are crucial asset elements of the infrastructure network. It is essential that their condition is monitored and repairs are planned and completed in an efficient and timely manner. The systematic inspection, condition rating and monitoring of these assets are vital components to managing the lifecycle of these structures.

This 3-day workshop will assist participants to develop the knowledge and skills to conduct Level 1 and 2 Inspections in accordance with industry best practice.


A Level 1 routine maintenance inspection is required to check the general serviceability of the structure, particularly for the safety of road users, and identify any emerging problems. 


A Level 2 condition rating inspection is a key step in assessing the effectiveness of past maintenance treatments and identifying current maintenance needs to assist in the forecasting future changes in condition and estimating future budget requirements of structures across the network.

Day 1 will investigate in detail the purpose and basics of a Level 1 bridge inspection, common problems and defects in structures and worked examples on how to undertake inspections, procedures, work health & safety, equipment requirements and completion of inspection reports.


Day 2 will include field inspections where attendees are required to practise Level 1 inspections and complete the inspection reports. Completed inspections will be reviewed and discussed, and attendees will be provided feedback on the assessments to ensure satisfactory understanding and competence in conducting Level 1 inspections. The program will then move to addressing in detail the purpose and basics of a Level 2 bridge inspection, common problems and defects in structures and worked examples on how to undertake inspections, procedures, WHS, equipment requirements and completion of inspection reports.


Day 3 will include field inspections of various structures where delegates are required to practise Level 2 inspections and complete the inspection reports. Completed inspections will be reviewed and discussed, and delegates will be

provided feedback on the assessments to ensure satisfactory understanding and competence in conducting Level 2 inspections.

Participants will be provided with a certificate of attendance. Certificates can be uploaded to the Track MY CPD portal to monitor you CPD compliance for or towards RPEQ.

This workshop provides the underpinning knowledge to align with nationally recognised units of competency from the Certificate IV in Civil Construction Supervision as well as other civil construction qualifications. A formal assessment

pathway is available for participants looking to achieve a competency outcome from this training. Attending this workshop along with formal assessments undertaken both during and after the workshop, will be used to provide the underpinning knowledge you will need to complete the assessment tasks for this skill set. 


The skills set comprises the following units of competency:

  • RIICSG405D: Carry out inspections of civil structures
  • RIIIMG301D: Maintain site records
  • RIIRIS301D: Apply risk management processes

Accreditation/assessment is only available to those who complete the full 3 Day Workshop (Level 1 & 2) and is provided by a registered RTO.
