For the second time RIBA has developed a national programme of CPD. There are 10 different seminars covering subjects in all 10 RIBA Core Curriculum areas. They are repeated in 14 different venues across England and Wales. All are welcome and you can attend any of the seminars throughout the year at any of the venues and pay as you book.
In the South West events will take place in both Exeter and Bath. Events will run on Tuesday afternoons in Exter, and Thursday afternoons in Bath, from 2.00 - 4.30pm with registration taking place from 1.30pm.
We hope that this flexible approach will give you more opportunity to build your professional competence and develop your personal skill
