RIBA Business Skills Webinar Series: Module Three

​​The RIBA has been exploring ways in which RIBA CPD seminars and courses can be made available digitally to the membership, in the UK and internationally. The RIBA is happy to be able to offer 1hrs and 1.25hrs webinars on business skills, helping you succeed in business.

Module Three: Sole trader: your essential guide to starting and growing your business

In 2019, the 5-hours, 15-min webinar series is delivered over five days, with intervening gaps, allowing you time to reflect, revise and review. You can attend all five modules in the series thus future proofing your business, or you can attend relevant modules only, if you need to refresh your understanding of each topic.

Following completion of all five webinars in the series, an attendance certificate will be issued showing that you attended the RIBA-accredited Business Skills Webinar Series.

For more information on individual modules, view the RIBA Business Skills Webinar Series Factsheet (PDF).
