1 An Introduction to - New Zealand Institute of Highway Technology (NZIHT) NZIHT is currently the largest provider of civil engineering, technical and skills training in New Zealand. It is an independent company, 100% owned by the Western Institute of Technology at Taranaki (WITT), a NZ government tertiary organisation. NZIHT has experience in delivering courses throughout New Zealand, as well as the South Pacific, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, East Timor and Bahrain.

2 Courses and programmes delivered by NZIHT include: NZIHT offers a range of specialist short courses, through to internationally recognised qualifications. These include Bachelor of Engineering Technology (Highways), a level 7 qualification New Zealand Diploma in Engineering (Level 4 to 6 qualification) Certificate in Engineering Technology (Level 4 qualification) National Certificate in Infrastructure Works (Level 2 qualification) Most of these courses have content that must be done in New Zealand.

3 Courses that can be delivered in Indonesia NZIHT delivers a wide range of specialist short courses of one and two day duration. Subjects are specifically for the civil industry and include: o Roading construction and maintenance o Operations o Supervision of civil works o Roading Design o Health and Safety These courses can be modified and developed to suit local Indonesian conditions

4 Courses that can be delivered in Indonesia Courses can be delivered either at a site, or in a dedicated class room setting, in East Java or other locations in Indonesia A training programme consists of a number of specialist courses, as selected from the following suggestions The training programme is for 5 days, 10 days or 15 days Courses contain taught material that relates to ‘on-the-job’ experience

5 Training courses suggested by NZIHT The following slides show a range of courses that have been selected to cover a variety of topics. Leadership courses 1.Leadership Training 2.Project Managers Toolbox 3.Supercharged Supervisors Toolkit NZIHT is flexible and can adjust the selection of courses to suit East Java requirements

6 Training courses suggested by NZIHT Technical courses 4.Geo-mechanics for roads (NZ) 5.Aggregates for Pavement Construction 6.Quality Pavement Construction 7.Installation and maintenance of road drainage systems Other Courses 8.Safety on Civil Worksites 9.Maintenance & Safe Use of Small Plant and Machinery NZIHT is flexible and can adjust the selection of courses to suit East Java requirements

7 Who should attend? The courses selected are suited to those with some experience in civil construction, and wishing to upgrade their skills and knowledge, including: Supervisors who manage on-site staff and oversee construction activities. Project Engineers, Designers and Technicians Project Managers, who have control of staff and need their instructions followed. Managers, responsible for civil infrastructure works, both new and experienced

8 Course #1 - Leadership Training This course is aimed at anybody who is in charge of a work team of any size. The course is high on involvement and equips the participants to take the concepts into the workplace and use them. It is delivered in an inductive (experiential) format, which allows participants to be totally involved in the learning process. Topics include: Improving Performance, Communication, The Leader/Manager Concept, Building and Maintaining Teams, Motivation, Conflict Management

9 Course #2 – Project Managers Toolbox Project management is the use of leadership, planning, scheduling and control techniques. Being an effective project manager today, means finding solutions to complex and multifunctional activities, and utilizing the necessary leadership skills to influence others to get the job done. Topics include: Negotiation Skills Leadership & Team Skills Time Management 11 Rules for Project Management

10 Course #3 – Supervisors Toolkit Supervision is the use of leadership, to get the work done, on behalf of your company in the constraints of time, budget and quality and to the satisfaction of the client. It also involves building your team, training and developing its members so that they can achieve the outcome even when you are not there. This highly interactive course will address four essentials to the supervisor: - What you have to BE - What you have to KNOW - What you have to DO - What you have to LEARN

11 Course #4 – Geo-mechanics for NZ roads This course draws together the necessary soil investigation and geotechnical procedures for roading construction and maintenance. It provides an up-to-date overview of investigative techniques and analysis. Topics include: Geotechnical engineering and pavement design Fundamental soil properties Compaction In-situ investigation and testing Effects and control of water movement Soil strength improvement

12 Course #5 – Aggregates for Pavement Construction This course identifies the properties and characteristics of aggregates and systems for quarrying, storage, selection and handling, so that these properties are not altered and their quality remains consistent until placement in the pavement. Topics include: Function of structural layers in a pavement Selection of pavement aggregates - sealed and unsealed pavements Role of clay minerals Aggregate production and properties of the product Storage, handling and compaction of aggregate for pavements Use of marginal and low quality aggregates

13 Course #6 – Quality Pavement Construction This course provides an overview of the theory and practice to assist team leaders and supervisors/forepersons to manage construction in the field. There is an increasing need for contracting firms to understand the issues involved with pavement construction, especially material compaction. Topics include: Excavation and identification of problem areas in subgrade Treatment of poor subgrade areas to achieve strength requirements Soil properties influencing compaction and Compaction assessment (in the field) Compaction equipment - types and application Spreading and placement of aggregate materials Grading, trimming, shaping and compaction of final surface Surface preparation

14 Course #7 – Installation & Maintenance of Roadside Drainage Good drainage is one of the key factors in the continuing performance of many civil engineering structures, including road pavements. Each drainage system has its own particular installation and maintenance requirements, whether undertaken by hand or machine, attention to detail is important. Topics include: Pipe laying, trenching, bedding and backfilling Types and functions of drainage systems Culvert and pipe installation (site preparation, trenching, laying and joining pipes, backfilling and testing) Subsoil drainage systems Maintenance procedure (blockages, breakages, inspection and repair) Reinstating pavement after repairs Replacement of damaged drainage systems

15 Course #8 – Safety on Civil Worksites This course outlines the principles of work site safety, how to prepare a safety plan, recognise potential hazards, locate, identify and isolate services and manage equipment in order to maintain a clean, safe, tidy working environment at a work site. Topics include: Subcontractors' responsibilities Hazard identification Identifying site specific quality procedures Essential maintenance and safety checks for tools and machinery Safe operation in varying weather conditions Personal protective equipment Manual excavation On-site communications

16 Course #9 – Maintenance & Safe Use of Small Plant and Machinery The proper care and correct use of such small plant enhances work practices and improves productivity. Small equipment can often contribute to accidents so a thorough understanding of their use is important. A variety of equipment is demonstrated in this course to illustrate key principles and safety procedures. Power tools Generators Rollers and compaction plant Screeds and other small machines These are all basic equipment used in the everyday operation of any roading or civil contracting company.

17 How much does it Cost? Until it is known what type of course is required, it is not possible to quote precisely the cost of a course. However, the following applies: Training can be offered in Jakarta, Surabaya or any provincial city Classes up to 20 participants have been allowed Training is for 5 days, Monday to Friday inclusive We have allowed for one tutor per week of training

18 How much does it Cost? Indicative prices for courses are as follows: One week programme = NZ$22,000 (approximately kirra kirra Rp 198,Juta) Two week programme = NZ$44,000 Three week programme = NZ$66,000 Prices include all international airfares, course books and course material But does not include for any domestic travel, accommodation and food for the Presenters.
