Continuing Professional Development seminars for building professionals

We offer a range of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) seminars for local agents, architects, builders, engineers and contractors.

What happens at Waverley's CPD events?

We run informal and friendly seminars around lunchtimes at the council's offices in Godalming. They usually last about an hour and are designed to increase understanding of a particular subject.

They are generally preceded or followed by a light buffet lunch where delegates have the opportunity to discuss the topic further with the presenter, network with the councils' Building Control team and other like-minded professionals.

The events are very well attended and help keep local professionals up to date with the latest techniques and innovations within the building industry and changes to Building Regulations.

We issue CPD certificates after each session.
