Book a Building Control training seminar

We organise regular Continuing Professional Development (CPD) seminars and training updates for local agents, architects, engineers and contractors.

These are very well attended because they keep local professionals up to date with the latest techniques and innovations within the building industry and keep them informed of changes to the building regulations. CPD certificates are issued following each session.

The presentations last about an hour and are designed to increase understanding of a particular subject. Our in-person CPD events are generally preceded by a light buffet lunch where delegates have the opportunity to network with the Sussex Building Control team and like-minded professionals.
