CONTINUING PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT (CPD) IS MANDATORY FOR ARCHITECTS TO KEEP THEIR PROFESSIONAL MEMBERSHIPS.
Each Chartered Member has to achieve 100 learning points, which is approximately 35 hours’ worth of CPD per year – that’s 45 minutes per week. So, Architects are always on the lookout for new products and manufacturers to learn from.
The RIBA CPD Providers Network, delivered by NBS, gives building product manufacturers the opportunity to provide education about their products to architects who are ready to learn. So effective is this method of marketing, nearly 60% of architects go on to specify one or more of a manufacturer’s products after having undertaken their CPD.
