About the Program

The  Construction, Engineering and Public Works Inspection Workshop is aimed at improving inspectors’ skills, techniques, reporting and data collection systems using latest technologies. The programme aims to address inspection issues in public works despite the unavailability of work tools, low morale, budget constraints, long supply chain management processes and a lack of skilled personnel. The objective of the programme is to provide crucial information needed by inspectors to carry out their duties skilfully.We are taking public works inspection to the highest level this year by bringing you the latest developments in line with international standards.
