In the lead up to the introduction of mandatory CPD for all Engineers Ireland members in 2017, the register of CPD training providers is becoming more and more important so we are delighted that our CPD offering has been added to the CPD options for their 23,500 members.
The Engineers Ireland Register of Training Providers supplements the core CPD programme provided directly by Engineers Ireland. The Register identifies further relevant and high-standard learning opportunities offered by external providers, such as Keystone Lintels. Engineers Ireland endorses training providers with the title of ‘Registered Training Provider’ on the basis that we meet the best-practice criteria laid down in their quality assurance processes.
To gain Registered Training Provider status, the primary purpose of the CPD programme must be educational. Engineers Ireland makes a clear distinction between educational and marketing activities. Applications are approved from organisations offering learning opportunities to help engineers in their professional development.
Keystone’s offering fulfils the requirements for a CPD event by having a strong emphasis on technical content and learning. The Keystone CPD seminar aims to give a comprehensive view of the manufacture, selection, supply and versatility of steel lintels, bespoke steel support systems and masonry support products. Keystone Lintels produce a wide range of specialist products designed to meet the needs of even the most complex of projects. The Keystone product range includes standard lintels, galvanised steel lintels, the ground-breaking Hi-Therm sustainability lintel as well as special lintels, brick slip feature lintels and Keystone’s masonry support and windpost systems.
The CPD training seminars endeavour to provide an insight into the design possibilities for steel lintels, an opportunity to explore completed projects, design guidance, a review of appropriate legislation, standard solutions, non-standard designs and ‘specials’ as well as assurances of quality and speed of delivery.
