The BCFA CPD program offers a range of RIBA accessed and approved seminars or events which can be used to develop skills and knowledge when specifying contract products for commercial projects and applications. Delivered by professionals within the BCFA membership BCFA CPD material is generic, well balanced and focuses on the design context in which a product is to be used. The specifier will come away with a clear understanding of how to specify the product, how the product will help them to do a better job, how to avoid incorrect applications and how to think in a new way in the context of the product and its usage.
