Guardian Glass launch free online CPD training centre for glass & glazing
Guardian Glass UK is pleased to announce the launch of its new online training centre. The training centre offers a video learning library, which covers different aspects of industry knowledge in short film format, from how glass is made to the technical differences between glass types. The videos are supported by online CPD (Continued Professional Development) training sessions which each take about 30-40 minutes to complete and provide vital knowledge applicable to glass specification.
“Guardian has a great deal of success with our RIBA accredited CPD’s” said Mark Bristow – Regional Manager for Guardian Glass UK. “Architects are expected to have a wide range of knowledge on all building materials; however they can’t be experts in everything. Through CPD training we are able to help keep architects and specifiers up to date on new flat glass products and innovations, key to future project developments”
“Providing our CPD’s in an online format was a natural progression,” said Mark. “Not everyone has the time to sit through CPD seminars, and this gives architects and specifiers the opportunity to take the CPD sessions in their own time.”
The online training sessions cover a wide range of topics from “Glass as a Design Material” to “Coated Glass and Energy Balance in Building”. Participants can also learn other vital information such as, how changes to Building Regulation Document L impact glass and glazing specification on new projects. This type of information is key when helping to ensure the right glass is specified to meet regulatory requirements.
All of the Guardian Glass online CPD training sessions include multiple choice questions and rate the participant’s knowledge and understanding of the material with a Pass, Merit or Distinction. On completion notification is sent to RIBA confirming the CPD has been taken and a certificate is generated for the participant.
Guardian online training is available as part of the free Guardian Plus programme. For more information and to access the training sessions, visit www.guardianglass.co.uk/technical
