FREE ZOOM CPD training sessions by insulation specialist, Actis are being offered to specifiers, building control officers, builders and architects.
Only a few spaces remain on the first four, interactive webinars taking place next month in collaboration with LABC.
The training was previously a regular feature at LABC’s monthly technical roadshows, with modules delivered to up to 100 delegates at a time – a format both organisations are keen to resume once it is safe to do so.
The online sessions, delivered by Actis specification manager, Dan Anson-Hart, are identical in content, but delivered to just a handful of attendees at a time.
LABC head of engagement Anna Thompson is a huge fan of the training modules, and both organisations are continuing to work very closely together to offer insight and training across the industry, for the time being in virtual format.
Upskill and develop
Anna said: “This is the ideal time to upskill and develop your knowledge in new areas. We’ve always found Dan to be a very engaging speaker and these sessions are definitely worth attending.”
The training is also encouraged, and allowable, for construction professionals currently on furlough.
Both sessions are certified by the Construction CPD Certification Service.
The first, Addressing the Performance Gap with Reflective Insulation, looks at the impact of thermal bridging on a building’s energy performance. It is also currently undergoing approval by the RIBA, at which stage it will be worth double the usual number of CPD points for RIBA registered architects.
Building Regulations compliance
The second, Proven Compliant Systems, looks at how installers can ensure their insulation and membrane use complies with building regulations – not just Part L, but also Parts B (fire safety), C (site preparation and resistance to contaminants and moisture), D (toxic substances) and E (resistance to the passage of sound).
The initial sessions on Tuesday June 2 and Thursday June 4 at 10am and 2pm are almost full – with bookings being taken for the final slots on a first come first served basis. Email email@example.com now to book, nominating your preferred date, time and whether you’d like the Proven Compliant Systems or Addressing the Performance Gap with Reflective Insulation module. Further sessions will be added should demand require it.
