ACE Fabreeka UK, the developer of Fabreeka TIM material, has introduced a new CPD (Continuing Professional Development) certified training course titled ‘Introduction to Thermal Breaks’.
Fabreeka TIM is a trusted thermal break solution specified by building and construction professionals everywhere. A thermal break is a material of low thermal conductivity which can be applied to conserve fuel and power in a building.
The launch of this new course is seen as a fundamental part of the company’s customer support programme in maximising the potential of engineered building and construction materials to advance the energy performance of buildings and structures.
The aim of this introductory module is to give trainees the basic knowledge required to identify opportunities for the application of thermal breaks and structural thermal breaks. The learning content is hosted free of charge online which means that it can be accessed ‘on the go’ including from a mobile phone.
The training is certified by the CPD certification service which means that the credits are accepted by professional bodies such as the Institute of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), Institute of Structural Engineers (IStructE), Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) in meeting the CPD requirements for professional registration, typically to be a chartered engineer.
The target audience for this beginner module is primarily contractors and buyers in the building and construction industry; in addition architects and structural engineers may also enjoy this training as a refresher.
The duration of the module is two hours (one hour webinar plus one hour guided independent study) and tests. One credit will be issued for attending the webinar and a total of two credits will be issued for passing the end of module tests.
