Under the arrangement, BESA members will be provided with a special weblink and code, enabling them to apply online for CIBSE’s professional-level training and claim their discount.
“This is a very positive move, and a further demonstration of the collaboration between our two bodies,” said Peter Rimmer, BESA’s director of employment affairs and skills.
“It also makes the important point that, when it comes to training, BESA does not just operate at craft level. We recognise that professional-level training and knowledge is also fundamental to what our members do.
“It is increasingly important that our training reach reflects the growing sophistication of projects, wider collaboration in the supply chain and technical developments like the greater use of digital design and data management,” Peter Rimmer added.
“Collaboration between organisations is vital to better building performance, especially in training, because it increases the skills of engineers and raises standards across the whole industry,” said Rowan Crowley, managing director of CIBSE Services.
The forthcoming CIBSE programme of courses covers electrical services, energy efficiency, facilities management, fire safety, lighting, mechanical services, project management and water services and public health.
