CRCWSC launches first professional development course
This innovative new course will commence in April 2016 in Perth with the aim of building the capacity of urban water professionals to assess the costs and benefits of water sensitive city programs and to influence the process for getting projects off the ground.
This course, the first in the CRCWSC Innovation Skills Series, is being developed in collaboration with industry stakeholders, and will build skills and knowledge to successfully develop and gain support for business cases to deliver water sensitive cities projects and programs.
Course participants will learn through an innovative delivery model that blends a short (two day) intensive face-to-face course followed by a longer period of planned work-based learning (two hour per month for three months), enabling participants to learn-by-doing in the context of their own projects.
The course will offer expert tuition, hands-on experiential learning which minimises time out of work, the opportunity to be part of a network of practitioners across the Australian urban water sector who face similar challenges, and the production of valuable and practical business case outputs for organisational planning and action.
Who should enrol?
