(1 Day)
Introduction to Solar Energy
The aim of this course is to provide delegates with an extended foundation of the main concepts of solar energy and to enable them to practically apply their knowledge in the design of solar energy systems for small (domestic) and large (commercial) applications.
(1 Day)
Essentials for Engineers on Environmental and Planning Law
The purpose of this course is to give an overview of how environmental law is integrated into the planning system. Delegates will learn about the key legal requirements, how the Courts have interpreted these processes and the common pitfalls.
(1 Day)
Technical Design of Nature Based Solutions within the Urban Environment
The purpose of this course is to outline the key processes in the detailed design of nature based solutions within the public realm. As well as illustrating how to identify, establish and use key design parameters to appropriately size and specify proposed SuDS interventions, this course will also outline methods for overcoming key barriers to construction.
(1 Day)
Fundamentals of Nature Based Urban Infrastructure Design and Practical Steps for Delivery
This course is intended to be an introduction to the design and delivery of urban infrastructure founded on nature based principles. Structured on the Statutory NTA work stages, it will walk through the process and provide a guide on how to identify and respond to conditions as a project typically proceeds.
(1 Day)
Fundamentals of Biodiversity Considerations for Engineering Projects
The purpose of this course is to provide an introduction to biodiversity and how, as a practicing engineer, to navigate it to manage project risks, provide more robust assessments and deliver a better outcome for both the environment and engineering projects.
(1 Day)
Fundamentals of Hydrogen Production, Storage and Transportation
This course aims to provide an independent, hype-free, business-focused introduction to the market growth opportunities and barriers in clean hydrogen production, storage and transportation.
(1 Day)
Fundamentals of Carbon Accounting for Engineers
This course aims to provide delegates with an overview of the Greenhouse Gases (GHG’s) which contribute to climate change.
(1 Day)
Engineering for Offshore Renewables
This course aims to provide candidates with an overview of the geotechnical and structural engineering requirements of offshore renewable energy with a focus on offshore wind. This one-day course will include an introduction to design approaches and examples from offshore wind.

Environmental Essentials for Engineering Projects CPD Programme
This programme provides all engineers managing projects with a comprehensive introduction to the environmental essentials covering Water, Air, Noise, Solid Waste and Effluent/Contamination.
(5 Day Programme)
Retrofitting Domestic Buildings for Energy Efficiency CPD Programme
This programme focuses particularly on the recommendations set out in NSAI SR54 “Code of Practice – Methodology for the Energy Efficient Retrofit of Existing Dwellings” and is divided into 5 distinct modules. The modules will cover topics including; Near Zero Energy Buildings, Basic Building Physics, Building Fabric, Building Services and Renewable Energy.
(1 Day)
Electric Vehicle Charging for Sustainable Developments
The aim of this course is to allow engineers to gain a level of knowledge of EVSE’s in line with more matured technologies and ensure the client receives the highest quality project outputs. Engineers will gain a grounding which allows them to converse confidently regarding EVSE requirements.
(4 Days)
Certified Energy Auditor
The Certified Energy Auditor is an individual who evaluates and analyses how energy is being used in a facility, identifies energy opportunities, and makes recommendations where consumption can be reduced or optimized. The aim of this course is to prepare individuals for taking the AEE Certified Energy Auditor Examination.
(1 Day)
Response of Flexible Structures to Dynamic Wind Loading
This course will provide an introduction to dynamic structural wind engineering. The purpose of this course is to introduce the concepts and methods of structural design and analysis for dynamic wind loading to practicing engineers.
(1 Day)
Wind Loading of Structures
The purpose of this course is to introduce the concepts and methods of structural design and analysis for wind loading to practicing engineers. Delegates will learn about the physical processes causing the wind and how they impose loads on structures.
(1 Day)
