RIBA Principal Designer course

RIBA Members get 50% off the RIBA CPD Programme, compared to non-members.

The RIBA's accredited Principal Designer course defines and provides adequate skills, knowledge and experience to a professionally agreed standard. To show awareness and capability to deliver this role there is an industry expectation for professionals to demonstrate attendance and knowledge attained. Following completion, an attendance certificate will be issued showing that you have completed the RIBA accredited course.

Completion of the course and your attendance certificate could be useful should a client, stakeholder or external body require evidence that you have the industry standard skills, knowledge and understanding of the principal designer role.
