Architects are increasingly seeing timber, especially CLT, as the sustainable answer to steel and concrete for structural applications. But training in timber hasn’t kept up with this interest. Until now.
Now Swedish Wood have launched a new RIBA-accredited multi-media online CPD course covering all the main structural topics, including Sustainable Timber, Building with Timber Frame, Building with Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT), Other Engineered Products, Roofing, Joists and Flooring.
You can take it section by section, whenever and wherever you want. Once you have completed all sections and a successful assessment, you can print your CPD certificate.
The Building with Wood course, developed with the Timber Trade Federation and the Structural Timber Association, is available free on Wood Campus.
Other accredited CPD courses available on Wood Campus include Wood in Interiors, Focus on Cladding, Procuring Sustainable Timber, Introduction to Windows, Deck Design & Installation and Wood Coatings & Preservatives. There’s even a special video version of the Procuring Sustainable Timber module presented by Dave Hopkins, Managing Director of the Timber Trade Federation.
