This is a competency based international certification scheme which has been developed by industry for industry to provide formalisation of knowledge and experience required by bridge inspectors.

This Scheme is promoted by the UK Bridges Board and the Irish National Roads Authority, supported by the Bridge Owners Forum. It is an international scheme (UK and Ireland) which will be used by roads, waterways and railway asset owners.

Your Skills Manager e-portfolio allows you to monitor and record information about existing skills, qualifications, training and Continued Professional Development.

Monitor: Skills, experience and achievements over a period of time to the required Achievement Rating.

Record information: Upload reports, photographic evidence and add comments to support skills, experience and achievements.

Continued Professional Development: Maintain competency based skills record and identify skills gaps and training needs against current and potential career progression.

The Skills Manager e-portfolio is designed to assist in skills recognition and skills development both for employers and employees. The upskilling advantage of a greater skilled workforce resulting in productivity gains, increased competitiveness and greater assurance and compliance for customers flow from this.
