This month, representatives from Excel were invited to deliver Continuing Professional Development (CPD) training for the Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) at WSP in Birmingham. WSP is one of the world’s leading engineering professional services consulting firms, with over 500 offices across 40 countries.
September 2017 saw eight industry professionals attend the CPD session, which primarily focussed around the recently revised Construction Product Regulation (CPR), Power over Ethernet and 2.5Gb/5Gb Ethernet. Modular by design, the course was developed to provide generic industry information as an overview as well as to hone in on specific details, particularly with CPR updates, which are topical in the cabling infrastructure industry with the BS6701 final comments being released next month.
The course content was developed by Excel’s specialists in the technical field, and delivered to the group by Technical Manager, Ian Mckiernan. Business Development Manager for Excel, Mike Kinder, was also on hand to answer the engineer’s questions.
Speaking to the group after the event, the attendees collectively agreed that the course content was useful in gaining a further understanding of the regulations and standards within the industry, and provided a strong foundation for them to be able to explore the topics further to support their own development.
