In-House CPD

In-House CPD

"Very clear and well-thought out. Good to have suggestions for the final part of the presentation, and to be able to influence what is discussed, though in the end we all chose to hear everything!"

In-house CPD is a very effective way of training staff without having to travel beyond the office.

Whether your company works on small-scale domestic projects, mid-size jobs or large-scale work, TGR can create a CPD presentation that is customised to the specific needs of your business.
Please note that until further notice, our CPD subjects will be offered online due to Covid 19. The advantage of this is that both your office-based staff and those who work from home can attend your CPD session at the same time. Our CPD sessions are usually one hour in duration – but please ask if you’d like a longer session a particular subject – and can be delivered at a time that suits your schedule: first thing, lunchtime or afternoon/early evening.
Our trainers will not give a sales pitch (or a free lunch!) and you will receive high-quality, affordable, unbiased training from independent experts who have worked with us in the field of sustainable construction for many years, bringing their considerable experience to our CPD sessions.

If there is a subject you’d like a CPD session on that’s not on our list, do get in touch as we can often identify a speaker who can cover extra topics.

Step Two: Contact us to confirm the content of the CPD and discuss your preferred dates.

We will discuss with you any specific aspects of the chosen subject you’d like us to concentrate on. For example, if you choose a session on BREEAM, we’d like to know what building types you work on to make sure that the session is as useful as possible to you. We’ll also check your preferred dates with our speakers.

Step Three: Confirm content, date and time of day with us.

We’ll email you with a confirmed date, time of day and content for the CPD of your choice and send you an invoice. Please email us with your choice of topics and preferred dates and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible: mail@greenregister.org.uk

Testimonials from some of our in-house CPD sessions:

"Excellent. I’d like Lucy to give many more presentations on the whole range of sustainability work, across the whole practice."

"Lucy is brilliant, extremely personable, very knowledgeable and easy to listen to. She varied the pace and addressed people’s interests really well."

“We would like to thank you for two of the most thought provoking and practical seminar days from a professional practice viewpoint that we can remember. It really was refreshing to hear views in impartial terms that were directly applied to realistic scenarios and current debates, including cost effectiveness which sadly the motivation for most people’s adoption or rejection of sustainable concepts. We look forward to attending future events.” Peter Wood, Director, Angus Meek Architects
