The Public Works Institute template was designed to address the supervisory and management needs of current first-line supervisors and up, and those individuals aspiring to be better leaders and supervisors.
National approval is based on participants receiving instruction in 11 core units. Institutes have the discretion to decide what content to deliver from a range of topics listed under each core unit. It is not required that Institutes cover all topics under each core unit, but consider the topics as a guidance tool. Local, regional and state responsibilities may warrant additional sub-units be included by the Chapter. The PW Institute Template will continue to meet the Donald C. Stone (DCS) Level 1 Public Works Supervisor (PWS) and Level 2 Public Works Manager (PWM) authorized institute completion requirement.
