Geberit’s RIBA-approved CPD training module ‘Embedding acoustics into design’ has gained official CIBSE approval. The free-of-charge training can now be delivered as part of the Continuous Professional Development of consultants, chartered engineers and engineering technicians.
‘Embedding acoustics into design’ provides a technical insight and definition of ‘noise’ and its causes. The module covers current British Standards relating to limiting bathroom sound and provides insight into the company’s approach to noise reduction – beginning with good design and ending with appropriate product choices and correct installation techniques.
The training course aims to help delegates understand the problem of noisy bathrooms, the importance of taking a holistic approach to minimising noise and suitable products available for creating a quiet bathroom that doesn’t impact on adjoining rooms.
CIBSE supports the careers of building services engineers in numerous ways such as approving work-based training programmes, for example Geberit’s ‘Embedding acoustics into design’ CPD.
