With more ABC Waters projects, there is a need to ensure that suitably qualified Engineers/Architects/Landscape Architects are on board to undertake the designs of such water features. IES is collaborating with PUB and other agencies to introduce the ABC Waters Professional Programme. The programme is aimed at building up the expertise in the area of ABC Waters design and increase the competitiveness of professionals in the Singapore market as well as within the region.
The objective of the Programme is to create awareness of ABC Waters design concept and its application in Singapore amongst professionals in the industry and to train professionals in the design, implementation and maintenance of ABC Waters Design features. Four core modules (CU1 to CU 4) and four elective modules (EU 1 to EU 4) are offered under the ABC Waters Professional programme.
The Programme commenced on 16 Sep 2011 and as of 1 Jun 2013, a total of 12 core modules and 6 elective modules have been conducted.
Participants who complete all four core modules plus any two elective modules would be eligible to be registered as an ABC Waters Professional subject to full compliance with Registration Criteria of IES, SIA or SILA. Participants who complete any single module would receive certificate of attendance for the module completed.
