New Thinking: New Certification
APWA is excited to announce the new Certified Public Works Professional program will launch at PWX 2018 in Kansas City.
The Certified Public Works Professional (CPWP) designation will have two levels:
The Certified Public Works Professional-Supervision (CPWP-S) recognizes individuals in the public works field who have the knowledge and experience to become supervisors in a public works organization. It is targeted to front-line employees, first-line supervisors and crew leaders, or others who wish to advance.
The Certified Public Works Professional-Management (CPWP-M) recognizes individuals in the public works field who have the knowledge and experience to manage organizations within a public works department. It is targeted to current supervisors who desire to move to management positions, mid-level managers and superintendents.
As with our existing certifications, the certification process will include:
What role do the nationally-approved Public Works Institutes play?
What Happened to DCS?
Individuals who have earned credentials from the DCS program will continue to be recognized, supported and valued by APWA and peers in the profession.
Applications will be available for the new program in June, with the first testing to take place in August.
Stay tuned for further developments. Eligibility requirements, costs and other information can be found on the Certification webpage on the APWA website.
