For RIBA Chartered Members, Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is mandatory, helping you stay competent, professional and capable in your role. Ongoing development is essential in enhancing the skills of architects so they can take on new specialisms while facing current challenges and preparing for new projects.
According to RIBA, what you can do as part of your CPD is flexible. Architects must undertake 35 hours of learning each year (equivalent to 45 minutes per week) and, for an activity to count towards this, you are required to learn something that is relevant to you as a professional.
Although your CPD doesn’t need to be accredited by RIBA, it’s recommended to only learn from RIBA-approved courses, which guarantees that you are taking on training of the highest quality. Jacksons Fencing is proud to be part of the RIBA CPD Providers Network and offers a list of RIBA-approved CPD seminars for clients across the UK.
