CPD presentations

CPD (Continuing Professional Development) is mandatory in many professions, including architecture, and offers professionals the chance to stay up to date and competent with current practice. RIBA Chartered Architects must complete at least 35 hours of CPD each year (with 20 coming from the RIBA CPD Core Curriculum), while CIAT requires the same number of hours from its members.

As part of our service to architects, specifiers and design professionals, Recticel offer industry recognised CPD material, available throughout the year and on site at your premises. There are a number of traditional CPD seminars available; lasting for 30-45 minutes with time for questions and answers, as well as a selection of 'CPD Articles' available online.
 
Recticel's CPD seminars are available across the UK and can be booked online or via Recticel Technical Services. To register your interest, please complete the form below or access the Recticel section of the RIBA CPD website here.
