Learn about wood at your own pace. Our online courses have been developed in conjunction with the Timber Research and Development Association and accredited for CPD by RIBA.
The courses allow professionals 24-hour access to technical and practical information about wood and wood products, including the latest information on issues such as certification and climate change.
Wood for Good in partnership with the Forestry Commission, is using BM TRADA to deliver a fresh new package of CPD seminars, to be held at architectural and engineering practices around the UK.
BM TRADA has an international reputation as a training provider for construction industry professionals. Reflecting the growing trend towards sustainable development, the talks will explore the role of timber in sustainable construction, modern methods of timber construction, as well as subjects such as using British Timber and Building Sustainably.
To take part, practices need only provide a suitable conference room and a minimum of 30 delegates. Smaller practices can join forces with other practices in your area – we can assist with details if necessary. There is no charge for these lectures as they are funded by Wood for Good and they will be supported by: CPD ‘surgeries’ of up to 30 minutes, giving delegates the opportunity to submit technical questions for discussion after the CPD event and TRADA’s technical helpline.
