Public works professionals build and repair the highways, roads, reservoirs, schools and other infrastructure our communities rely on. These professionals work for the government and on behalf of the community. Current legislative changes, environmental concerns and budgeting constraints mean these professionals need to master a range of decision-making, leadership, communication and other skills so they can serve all stakeholders on projects. Public works training programs and continuing education help these skilled professionals stay alert to changes in legal and other requirements.
Lorman Education Services offers exceptional training because we work with the best professionals when developing our online public works training programs. You’ll learn from professionals who have years of hands-on experience on public works projects and who have leadership positions.
