Over the years, IKT has acquired a reputation as an institution for advanced vocational training. This includes the certification of consultants and sewer leak tightness inspectors. To get more information about IKT’s training (in German) please visit: www.ikt.de


In 2013 IKT teamed up with IRWA, the International Right of Way Association (USA), to develop joint courses and certication programs on “Managing the Crowded Underground”. Read more about IRWA

The same year a first series of webinars started successfully focussing on water related issues of asset management of underground infrastructure. Most of these sessions are available via youtube and you can follow them for free!
IRWA/IKT members are also entitled to obtain all presentations as pdf-files via IRWA University.

XXXHallo Herr BosselerXXX

Wie kommen unsere Mitglieder an die PDF’s? Ich hab jetzt einfach mal IRWA Univerity stehen lassen, aber das war ja für irwaonline.org gedacht.
Sollen Mitglieder via e-mail die Dateien anfordern können? An wen sollen die E-Mails gehen? An Lutz – als “Mitglieder-Betreuer”? Oder sollen wir eine Bestell-PDF hinterlegen? So mit Ankreuzmöglichkeit
Ich bin Mitglied im
O Förderverein Netzbetreiber
O Förderverein Wirtschaft
O Erfahrungskreis Kanalbetrieb
O kein Mitglied, gegen eine Gebühr von xx Euro bestelle ich hiermit die Datei

Oder haben Sie noch eine ganz andere Idee?
