The AWP certification programs create a standard certification process for WorkFace Planners and Advanced Work Packagers in construction (primarily within the domain of energy / oil and gas, but applicable and relevant to megaprojects in the chemicals, infrastructure, power generation and commercial domains as well).
Formal certification in this domain has been a long time in the making, and while future certifications are still in the works, we can now begin accepting applications for the WorkFace Planning Professionals Level 1 (WFP in Training) Certification.
The WorkFace Planning Professional
The WorkFace Planning Professional certification program aims to establish the benchmark for required training, previous experience and demonstrated knowledge to qualify for certification as a WorkFace Planning Professional (WFPP). There are two phases to WFPP certification:
WorkFace Planning Professional Level One (also called WFP in Training); and
