Our Courses


Avoiding Common Roofing Defects

This CPD provides clear guidance on identifying and avoiding common design, application, and aesthetic roof defects on real-life roofing projects.

You will be provided with techniques to survey and assess existing roof structures and the knowledge of varying waterproofing systems to ensure the longevity of new-build and refurbishment roofing specifications, that complies with up-to-date industry legislation and building regulations.

Learning Objectives:

  • Different types of roof waterproofing systems
  • How to specify the right system for the right specification
  • Tools and techniques to survey and assess
  • The common design, application and aesthetic roof defects
  • What support you should expect from suppliers

Cutting Carbon Through Sustainable Roofing Design

Outlining the key areas of consideration for specifiers, the ‘Cutting Carbon through Sustainable Roofing Design’ CPD explores carbon emissions during the entire lifecycle of your building project, from construction through to operational use and provides clear guidance on how sustainable roofing design can play a pivotal role in reducing emissions in commercial buildings and support your organisation’s critical environmental initiatives.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Current legislation and Building Regulations requirements that relate to cutting carbon.
  • Whole Life Carbon of a building and the opportunities to reduce emissions at each stage.
  • Existing sustainability initiatives that encourage carbon reduction.
  • Effective, sustainable roofing systems in the market
  • The analytical tools to identify areas for improvement in the roofing design to maximise potential carbon reductions.

Minimising fire risks within flat roof construction – Safe2Torch

This CPD covers the risks associated with flat roof design across specification and application with a primary focus on torch-on bituminous membranes and how the risk of fire can be mitigated through the use of self-adhesive and liquid technologies. The seminar addresses the recent changes in regulations following the Hackitt report and the measure taken by the NFRC.

Learning Objectives:

  • The risks associated with hot works
  • Your responsibilities and duties under CDM 2015
  • How to identify risks associated with flat roof design, construction and application in relation to fire
  • The importance and message behind the NFRC Safe2Torch Campaign
  • How to reduce fire risks using safe design practices, safe specification writing and application methods on-site

Standing Seam Metal Roofing Systems – Design Considerations and Specification

This CPD seminar discusses metal roofing with a focus on standing seam systems, including detailed specifications and application uses. Where standing seam metal roofing systems can offer a breadth of design opportunities, the latest innovation in metal waterproofing technology also provides ultimate protection from the elements in either warm or cold roof applications.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understanding typical metal roofing systems
  • What is Standing Seam Metal Roofing?
  • Typical constructions and material choices
  • Applications and basic requirements
  • The flexibility of design and building regulations
  • System benefits of Standing Seam

Liquid Roofing Systems using Polyurethane Technology

This CPD seminar discusses the key concepts of polyurethane liquid waterproofing technology. A highly versatile system of choice for specifiers, this CPD will detail the benefits of liquid waterproofing systems and how they provide long-lasting protection for a wide range of applications including building envelope, walkways, balconies and hard-wearing car park surfacing.

Learning Objectives:

  • The history behind polyurethanes
  • Polyurethane technology and development
  • Benefits and advantages
  • Applications and basic requirements
  • Common solutions to waterproofing problems
  • Product certification and approvals
