Face to Face Building Services Training (under development)

CIBSE Training offers a wide variety of 1- 4 day building services modules across multiple disciplines. CIBSE ANZ is working over 40 volunteers to develop course content for Australia and New Zealand, initially developing introductory modules for Mechanical, Electrical, Fire and Hydraulics, Sustainability, Vertical Transportation, NCC and Performance Solutions. These modules will be available early 2020.
We will work with respected trainers to deliver these course around Australia and New Zealand. 


Training and Development Programme - approved T&D Schemes

A T&D scheme allows your company to support prospective professional engineers as they develop skills and learn to demonstrate their competence towards becoming a corporate member of CIBSE and an Engineering Council registrant.

A company that employs Chartered and Incorporated Engineers and Engineering Technicians will enhance its ability to win potential business. In some cases, evidence of employing registered engineers is necessary for the award of contracts in Australia, New Zealand and overseas. There’s no easier way to encourage your staff to become professionally registered than by running a training and development scheme.
