Architects CPD

Galvanizers Association, the representational body for the hot dip galvanizing industry in the UK and the Republic of Ireland, were founder members of the RIBA CPD Providers Network and work closely with RIBA for new generations within the industry. The Association has been providing Architects CPDsfor well over 25 years.

A continuing professional development (CPD) is an occasion to ensure that you keep up to date, stay ahead and manage your career. A CPD increases your potential by making your growing and progressing.

Two Architects CPDs

We currently offer two CPDs for architects:
1. Corrosion Protection of Steel by Hot Dip Galvanizing (process, performance, design and more)
2. Galvanizing and Sustainable Construction CPD (process, performance, sustainable aspects etc)

Both CPDs can either be presented online or by an office visit.

The corrosion protection of steel CPD covers the hot dip galvanizing process, the coating performance, how to design for the process and more. The galvanizing and sustainable construction CPD will also cover the process and the performance, but will also focus on the sustainable aspects of galvanizing: carbon footprint, recycling and durability.

5 Key Benefits of our Architects CPDs

  1. They are approved by RIBA and recognised by RIAI (click here for more information on our RIAI CPD), so they count towards your annual CPD points;
  2. You learn about cost-effective corrosion protection with a proven record through case studies and case histories;
  3. You learn how to specify galvanizing, which will save you time in the design process;
  4. They are both free presentations;
  5. Information packs with literature and RIBA CPD certificates are provided
Bonus: We reimburse you for lunch time refreshments.
