Develop your structural engineering skills to assess the damage and make informed decisions on whether to repair or dismantle a damaged building.

RedR UK is offering a free-of-charge, innovative, high-quality online training course aiming to provide structural engineers in Ukraine the tools, skills, and knowledge to better assess damages and make informed decisions on whether to repair or dismantle a building or seek expert advice.

Through a blended learning approach, you will cover simple tools for structural assessment, adequate structural detailing and related quality control for damaged buildings.

The course is not looking to training certified damage assessor however it aims to enable the comission members to undertake damage assessemnt effectively. Having said that, the training will help non-strucutural engineers to get certification of damage assessor in Ukraine by uplifting their knowldge in relation to damage assessment. The core modules pertain directly to damage assessments, however there are optional extra modules if participants would also like to upskill on repairs, retrofitting, or understand the more technical details of structural behaviour of buildings.

This course is 5 weeks plus a welcome week, composed of 4 live sessions, with individual and group work assigned between each session. In total, you will be expected to spend about five hours per week on this training.

After completing this course, participants will be able to:

  • Explain loading and its critical design considerations
  • Determine the fundamental behaviour of a structural system and how load will transfer throughout the structure
  • Determine the types of failure that can occur in a local element and how to visually identify failures on site
  • Describe the methods of structural analysis for the purpose of performance based design
  • Determine the most suitable retrofit approach for different structural defects locally or globally
  • Describe good construction practice for a retrofit or repair for resilient structure


The program will run between the 1 of March and the 5th of April 2024. Each week of the 5-week training program consists of self-paced online work (Moodle) and 4 live practical sessions.

Below you can see the exact schedule:
