RIBA CPD Curriculum areas

Architects are expected to be all-rounders and so must spread their CPD over 6 topic areas.

GBE CPD is dominated by Environmental topics but address many issues which cut across the RIBA CPD Curriculum topic areas.

The focus of the seminar is indicated by Bold text

To assist Architects in choosing CPD subjects to ensure a broad mix this table indicates where a CPD seminar addresses issues under the 6 RIBA Curriculum topic areas.

GBE believe the Architect can obtain 36 hours of CPD from this collection and meet the RIBA CPD requirements.

Each row is a separate PowerPoint show

This list is not comprehensive another list is being created with over 600 seminars
