Zaun joins RIBA-approved CPD network

Steel fencing manufacturer Zaun Limited will be educating architects on integrated perimeter systems after becoming a RIBA-approved CPD provider.

Zaun will be delivering the RIBA-assessed seminar Perimeter and Integrated Systems, The Trusted Advisor and giving factory and demo area visits at its Wolverhampton head office to help architects fulfil their annual CPD requirements.

Zaun joins the RIBA CPD Providers Network, which consists of over 500 manufacturers and suppliers who provide RIBA-approved CPD to architects and other specifiers.

The network partners deliver free RIBA-assessed CPD face-to-face in architects’ practices or on factory tours, at RIBA CPD roadshows or online.

CPD is mandatory for RIBA Chartered Architects, and having RIBA approved CPD material available as seminar presentations, articles, videos, factory tours and in other formats is a good way to open doors to start building key relationships.

Approved seminars are worth double points to RIBA Chartered Architects.

The Zaun seminar, which can be booked by clicking here, fits within RIBA’s core curriculum subject Designing and Building It: Design, Construction, Technology and Engineering at a general awareness knowledge level.

Zaun must keep the seminar material up-to-date and advise RIBA when it changes any content to conform to current legislation, guidelines or user needs.

The RIBA promotes the material on the website, through its assessed material list and via monthly CPD Showcase e-marketing campaigns.

In an Architects Journal survey of the top 120 architectural practices, 84% said they use RIBA-approved CPD and 66% of respondents had attended a face-to-face seminar with a RIBA CPD Providers Network member.
