Ministry of Transportation & Infrastructure
The BC Ministry of Transportation & Infrastructure and BCIT have partnered to develop the Area Manager Road Certification (AMRC) course-bundle.
The old program consisted of six courses:
- AMRC 2011 – Soil and Aggregate Fundamentals
- AMRC 2012 – Surveying and Road Design Fundamentals
- AMRC 2013 – Highway Construction
- AMRC 2014 – Development Planning
- AMRC 2015 – Communications
- AMRC 2016 – MoT Maintenance Agreement
Please note this course-bundle is nearing the end of a comprehensive initiative to update content and revise the delivery model from distance education courses to online courses available through BCIT’s educational platform, the Learning Hub.
The following courses have been retired and replaced by new online courses:
- AMRC 2011 – Replaced by AMRC 1011. Please click here for more details about the course and to register.
- AMRC 2012 – Replaced by AMRC 1012. Please click here for more details about the course and to register.
- AMRC 2013 – Replaced by AMRC 1013. Please click here for more details about the course and to register.
- AMRC 2014 and 2016 have also been retired. The new versions of these courses will be available soon. Please check this site for updates or email Andrea_Dusanj@bcit.ca to place your name on an email update list for developments on these courses.
AMRC 2015 is currently still available as a distance education course and is next (and last) in line to be retired and renewed by spring 2021.
To summarize, the new iteration of this program is:
AMRC 1011 – Soils, Aggregate and Pit Management
AMRC 1012 – Survey Design Phases and Traffic Engineering
AMRC 1013 – Introduction to Highway Construction and Drainage
AMRC 1014 – Development Services and Traffic Management Services – coming in 2021
AMRC 1015 – Ministry Communications – coming in 2021
AMRC 1016 – Highway Maintenance Agreement – coming in early 2021
AMRC 1017 – Field Practicum (new) – coming in 2021
You are given 12 weeks to complete each course and should expect to dedicate 6-10 hours per week. The pass grade is 75%.
AMRC 1011, 1012, and 1013 are recommended to be taken in sequence, and must be completed before attempting AMRC 1017. AMRC 1014, 1015 and 1016 are stand alone courses and can be taken at any time, when they become available. All 7 courses must be completed for MOTI to recognize completion of the Area Manager Road Certification (AMRC) course-bundle.
