Ecobuild Features CPD Accredited Seminars
VISITORS to Ecobuild can access formal CPD (Continuing Professional Development) opportunities by attending seminars at the show. Organiser UBM has worked with the Construction CPD Certification Service to ensure that each of the 80 plus seminars are now compatible and applicable with global CPD principles.
The programme is split across seven key themes, including new Building Information Modelling (BIM) in association with the NBS, designing better buildings in association with Passivhaus Trust, refurb and retrofit, and building performance. Separate to the main conference, the seminar programme delivers practical and applied information.
Case study-led sessions include the Ministry of Justice headquarters refurbishment project; and a retailer’s perspective on health, productivity and wellbeing from Marks and Spencer.
Alison Jackson, group director of sustainability & construction, Ecobuild, says: ‘In a time of austerity, competition in the job market is also fierce, so employers are looking more and more at professional qualifications as well as on-the-job experience. With emerging innovations such as Building Information Modelling hot on the agenda for the entire supply chain, there is no stronger case for keeping up-to-date with personal development. What’s more it’s completely free to attend!’
