Infrastructure Resilience Professional (IRP) Credentialling Program
The IRP Program has been designed to help infrastructure practitioners strengthen the knowledge and competencies they require to advance more climate-resilient approaches for the planning, design and management of infrastructure. Engineers Canada – the umbrella organization for the 12 regional Canadian regulators of the engineering profession – launched the Program in 2016 as a series of courses for engineers on the PIEVC Protocol, asset management, risk management, and climate change law.
The IRP courses will be of interest to engineers and other professionals who are involved in the planning, procurement, design, operation, maintenance, management and regulation of infrastructure and who need to consider the changing climate in carrying out these activities.
CRI assumed responsibility for the Program in July 2020 and began offering the courses in November 2020
