Building Regulatory Engineering – Weekend Course on Building Regs – CIT


With the introduction of the new building control inspection regime and certification process just around the corner, now is a good time to learn or refresh on all aspects of the building regulations and their associated technical guidance documents.

Cork Institute of Technology are running their 6th weekend delivery of their very successful 4 weekend course in “Building Regulatory Engineering” starting on Friday the 21st March 2014. Different areas of building regulations are covered each weekend, from 6-9pm Friday, and on Saturday from 9am until 4pm. An assessment is taken at the end of each weekend, and no formal end of module examination is required.

We attach a copy of our introductory letter, together with our lecture schedule. This extensive course on the building regulations is available at the very reasonable cost of €495. Our courses generally have a range of participants from recent graduates to very experienced practising professionals, and we get very positive feed back from all participants. Class sizes are kept small to allow active involvement and to maximise the learning experience.
