Managing Risk on Lower Order Roads

To assist with the implementation of these guidelines, a training program has been developed that provides key stakeholders with the relevant knowledge and skills to apply the strategies embedded in the document in a practical and consistent way.

Spray Seal Construction and Failure Review

This course focuses on when and where sprayed treatments can be used by introducing participants to the strengths and weaknesses of the various types of sprayed treatments commonly used including the types of surface defects that may be corrected. It will also cover how to bitumen sprayer works and limitations and also covers a number of different failures and their causes

Street Design Manual

Developed for industry by industry, the Manual recognises the role of streets as important connectors to multi-purpose social spaces in our neighbourhoods. It emphasises active transport’s role in delivering a sense of community and healthier lifestyles.

By complementing the Queensland Government’s model code for neighbourhood design, recent amendments to the planning regulations and other policy initiatives, the Manual provides a more coordinated approach to neighbourhood planning and design than in earlier guidelines. It also includes appropriate guidelines applicable to the higher residential densities than applied when earlier manuals were developed.

Although focused on greenfield development, the principles, objectives and strategies in the document are applicable to the redevelopment of existing streets.

Bridge Inspection Level 1 & 2

The three day workshop, focusing primarily on bridges and major culverts, provides the participants to the opportunity to learn how to conduct inspections in accordance with best practice. The course will cover the processes associate with the two major inspection types, Level 1 and 2.

Erosion and Sediment Control Level 3

This course is identified as advanced training with attendee numbers limited to provide the best learning environment, encouraging discussion and engagement. It is not a prerequisite for attendees to have completed the Level 1 & 2 courses, however attendees should have a existing understanding and experience with Erosion and Sediment Control (ESC). Registration for the Level 3 course includes attendance of the Type A, B & D sediment basin design course (day 3).

Attendees will gain knowledge and skills to develop and/or assess an ESC plan against the requirements of the IECA 2008 “Best Practice Erosion and Sediment Control” document and its revised appendices..

Sediment Basin Design

This course has been developed to support the finalised Appendix B (IECA, 2018) document and updated State Planning Policy (Qld). Attendees will gain an in-depth understanding of key design and operational parameters. The course will also provide guidance on construction and operation of Type A, B & D sediment basins, building on performance assessment and troubleshooting tools provided in the Appendix B document.

Each attendee will be supplied with a jar testing kit to assist in selection and use of coagulants and flocculants. In addition, attendees will be provided with a sediment basin sizing tool to assist in basin design tasks. Content and discussion during the course will include expert experience to assist designers and operators in improving design and effectiveness of sediment basins whilst reducing risk and cost.

Temporary Traffic Management

This one-day workshop will provide a practical overview of the new standards, the key changes in TTM practice, and other key elements that must be applied to achieve compliance. 


What Our Clients Say

Dion Jones
Director Engineering Services
Goondiwindi Regional Council

Recently, Goondiwindi Regional Council received funding from the State Government’s TMR - Statewide Capability Development Fund to upskill staff in Native Title and Cultural Heritage compliance for infrastructure projects. Due to the additional costs of accommodation and potential loss of productivity in sending multiple staff to other locations for training we can only usually afford to send a very small handful of staff away at any one time.


IPWEA-QNT were able to provide this training course, combined with a neighbouring Council, over two days to share costs and upskill more staff in a shorter, more cost effective time frame. The convenience of holding the training less than two hours away meant that Council was able to upskill 15 staff members who only required travel to and from the course on the day that they were allocated to attend. The benefits of IPWEA-QNT tailoring this training course to suit our needs meant we were able to upskill more staff and the potential for loss of productivity was minimised.
