CPD seminars

Free lunchtime seminars - book now!

We organise regular CPD seminars and training updates for local agents, architects, builders and contractors. The aim of the seminars is to keep local professionals up to date with the latest techniques within the building industry as well as keeping them informed of changes to the Building Regulations as and when they occur.

Following each seminar, CPD certificates will be issued.

Our seminars are held at the Council offices, Millmead House, Millmead, Guildford, GU2 4BB with registration and a buffet lunch from 12.15pm, giving delegates the opportunity to network with Guildford Building Control and other like-minded professionals. The seminars start at 12.45pm and last around an hour and are designed to increase understanding on a particular subject.
