As a professional in transport today you must possess both a breadth of capability and a depth of specialised technical and strategic knowledge. You need to maintain your skills and knowledge by continuing professional development.
But you are faced with questions like: How do you develop your skills and knowledge? What is needed to stay current and relevant in your job? How do you broaden your knowledge and understanding about related fields?
The answer is courses, workshops, seminars and conferences, reading books and journals and/or undertaking formal academic studies. Transport Futures Institute delivers high quality courses presented by experienced experts.
Each course has been developed to build your knowledge and address practical issues to help you be more effective in your work, enable you to see challenges from different perspectives and to think in new ways and be more confident. We utilise the latest research and identify best practice exemplars to provide up to date practical knowledge.
Our proven blended learning format will give you the opportunity to learn and reflect prior to a face to face class where you can discuss and consolidate your knowledge.
The job performed by transport professionals continues to be increasingly demanding, as a result of the explosion of knowledge, the rapid rise in information technology and the growing complexity of industry.
There are not enough skilled, experienced and trained people available to satisfy the demand from government, consultants, contractors and suppliers. Those being recruited into transport have to gain the breadth and depth of knowledge and skills to fulfil their job demands.
Our approach focuses on two key themes: to be of value and practical. We have to demonstrate value for any transport project to be successful – the benefit greater than the cost – and it has to be realistic and practical – no pipe dreams here.
