Having been a Building Services Design Engineer since 1991 (electrician prior to that) I was primarily involved with designing electrical installations (+ security systems, etc) on a variety of projects.

For the last few years, I have been employed as an M&E Project Manager dealing with Healthcare and Educational Construction Projects and also provide technical advice to colleagues on other projects.

However, I am concious that my skills are developing into a more "all-round" approach to construction, gaining knowledge of building related matters, mechanical installations, finance, contractual issues, etc, etc.

Although I find his role perfectly suited to me (as I like to be involved with everything) I am concious that I am leaving my first "love" of electrical engineering behind.

With this in mind, I was wondering if anyone was aware of any "refresher" type courses on building services (electrical bias, but including mechanical services) just so I can keep my eye in --- i am not looking to be sitting exams or undertaking courses on the 17th Edition (god knows I have done enough of that over the years), I am just simply looking for a broad brush update on rules/regulations and the like.

Any suggestions (even e-learning style) would be most appreciated.

Not sure if this is exactly what you are looking for but you could try CPD seminars from various manufacturers. You can find manufacturers via the RIBA online CPD locater.


Please also see the link below to view CIBSE's online CPD.

Hope that is of some use to you.
