Trainees are given the basic knowledge required to identify opportunities for the application of thermal breaks and structural thermal breaks in the introductory module. The learning content can be accessed ‘on the go’ as it is hosted free of charge online.

Contractors and buyers in the building and construction industry are the target audience for this beginner module and additionally, architects and structural engineers may also enjoy this training as a refresher.

The module is two hours and include an hour long webinar and an hour long guided independent study and then tests. Those who attend the webinar will earn one credit for attending and a total of two credits for passing the end of module tests.
