New RIBA-approved CPD seminars from Norcros Adhesives

Architects and specifiers are set to benefit from two new CPD seminars from tile adhesive and self levelling manufacturer Norcros Adhesives. The Norcros CPD seminars cover the subjects of Reinforced Polymer Technology for Tiling and Avoiding Common Failures when Specifying Wall and Floor Tiling.

Specifically developed for architects, specifiers and large contractors, the new seminars provide important information for customers in these key sectors, who need to keep their CPD qualifications up to date. The areas covered by the two new Norcros CPDs are particularly important, as there is often a lack of information readily available and architects frequently contact the Norcros technical department seeking information.

The new seminars can be delivered in a variety of different ways. As well as traditional seminars, the CPDs can also be viewed online via YouTube or the company’s website.

The RPT seminar covers:

  • The correct identification and preparation of background and bases;
  • The correct selection of tile types and specification of fixing materials such as adhesives and grouts;
  • The correct installation practices in accordance with British and European standards and surrounding legislation.

The seminar on avoiding failures covers the following areas:

  • Tiling over wood-based substrates;
  • Tiling over screeds;
  • Best practice floor tiling installation;
  • Tiling over plasterboard;
  • Tiling over plywood.

Mandy Searle, technical services manager at Norcros Adhesives, said:

“Our two new seminars have been approved by RIBA to form part of the Association’s core curriculum, and as such will be of considerable interest to architects and specifiers who are obliged to maintain their knowledge levels in key areas. We are keen to make it as easy as possible for professionals to access our seminars, which is why we have put them on our website and also on YouTube. We are confident that our RIBA-approved seminars will be welcomed by the industry and will also play an important part in helping drive up tiling standards.”
