THE IMPORTANCE OF CPD, & WARRIOR DOORS
CPD is relevant to all types of professions and industries covering numerous products and services. It is an ideal way of keeping up to date with current practices whatever your profession. It is beneficial and critical for professional development and in the case of architects a necessary part of retaining chartered membership of RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects). Architects must attain 35 hours of CPD per year so are relying on product and service providers to create relevant and current CPD content.
In many respects CPD overcomes the issue of academic and practical qualifications becoming obsolete over time and helps individuals stay up-to-date and informed on what they need to know to fulfil their professional role.
Launched in 1996, as a Government led initiative, the CPD Certification Service aims to ensure businesses and the individuals within businesses, across industry sectors were given the support, advice and accreditation they needed to help them progress. Manufacturers and suppliers can also create RIBA-accredited CPD which are readily recognised by architects and specifiers as the content is created in a generic way to be informative and educational and not a sales pitch!
Warrior Doors understands the benefits of CPD from both a manufacturers and specifiers perspective with education and learning being at the core of good CPD content. It enables those supplying products and services to impart good practice and specification criteria relating to their products and services. On the converse, the architect and specifiers can learn about new products, practices and methodologies in an informed way.
Warrior has a RIBA-accredited CPD focusing on door specification aimed at the social housing market, plus our factory tour is also accredited covering design, manufacturing and testing. We are currently working on a new CPD focusing on security ratings for high security doors which looks at what architects and specifiers need to know to help them specify the right type of door in different applications.
As well as seminars and factory tours, CPD incorporates a range of methodologies to help companies and professional individuals learn in a way that suits their requirements, including training workshops, conferences and events, e-learning programs, best practice techniques and idea sharing – all of which hones in on helping individuals improve, either as a sole professional, or as part of a team.
