Digital CPD

Since the launch of the RIBA Webinar Series in 2018, the RIBA has been exploring ways in which RIBA CPD can be made available digitally to the membership, in the UK and internationally. We are pleased to be able to offer a variety of live webinars, as well as an on-demand RIBA Principal Designer Series.

Take part in a live webinar, request to have a webinar tailored to your practice or watch on-demand and complete your CPD from the comfort of your desk.

RIBA Academy

RIBA Academy is your new platform for online CPD, webinars, and digital learning – anywhere, anytime

Record your CPD

Record your CPD activities on the RIBA’s new mobile friendly platform. You can record on your mobile at the end of a CPD session, or wherever and whenever is convenient for you. Recording your CPD on this platform is an obligation. It allows you to demonstrate your competence and professionalism, in order to maintain your chartered status. We regularly audit records to check compliance. Get started at the My Account area.

What you'll need for digital CPD

RIBA uses Skype for Business as a platform for live webinars and a file sharing platform for on-demand content. You will need the following to participate: 

  • Laptop/desktop: please note use of mobile/tablet is not advisable as some interactions are not compatible with these devices
  • Headphones: if you are joining a webinar from your office/crowded location, please ensure you have working headphones with you
  • Confirmation email: if you are attending a live webinar, you will be sent a link to join this webinar, including instructions on how to join. Please follow this link at least 10 minutes prior to the event’s start time. Confirmation email will be sent 7 days prior to the event start date. You will not require a Skype account but the RIBA Webinar Series is delivered via Skype for Business. If you are a Mac user, you may need to download the Skype for Business App. However, there is no requirement for you to create an account. If you have made a booking to view on-demand, you will be sent a link to view the module(s). Please note that we use a file sharing platform to share the content – you do not need to download anything for us. A confirmation email will be sent to the email address provided with one link per module. Once you open the link, you will be prompted to enter your email address to receive a 6-digit verification code. After opening the link, you will have a set amount of time to view the content. After this time the link will expire. Please note, for security reasons, you will be logged out of the platform every hour and will need to re-join using the same link.
