GBE CPD Title Navigation


  • Home (Navigation) G#2833
  • Page Groups (Navigation) G#15610 (Groups ≠ Contents List)

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 1000 seminars
