Education: Overview


The APWA Alberta Chapter is a leader in providing public works practitioners with the training they need to succeed in both the public and private sector. The APWA is a firm believer that safety and community viability is enhanced when public works supervisors are equipped with the technical and practical knowledge to improve the communities they serve. The association works diligently in the development of qualified Public Works Supervisors and promotes education at all levels of professional experience and education. 

The cornerstone of the APWA Alberter Chaper education program is the Public Works Supervisor program. This program was developed for a professional who provides efficient and effective public works services by leading a specialized work force, which manages resources, programs, budgets, and contracts.

The Public Works Supervisor program was designed so that supervisors can gain the necessary skills, education, and experience to advance from basic public works supervision to a more advanced management capacity. By the time members reach their Level III status, they should have an in-depth understanding of - and demonstrable skill in - crisis management, planning, and regulations and safety.
