CPDs go online with the Wienerberger Knowledge Builder

  • 2 Aug 2018

Wienerberger has announces the launch of the Wienerberger Knowledge Builder™ portal, an online library of RIBA-accredited CPD training modules.

Knowledge Builder™ is a website dedicated to delivering CPD content in a digital format that fits in with architects’ busy lifestyles.

After demand from architecture professionals for more online CPD material, Wienerberger’s educational modules can be completed on the go, at a time, place and speed convenient for the user.

On top of this, Knowledge Builder™ users have the chance to win an Apple HomePod; to enter, simply complete a CPD module and the short feedback survey which follows.

Wienerberger are the first manufacturer in the construction industry to make their full portfolio of CPD content openly available online via their own platform.

The nine accredited modules cover the whole building envelope, focussing on bricks, roof tiles, pavers, blocks, façade systems and clay as a natural building material.

Knowledge Builder™ currently offers the following RIBA-accredited CPD modules, which cover elements of the RIBA Core Curriculum.

Each CPD module is delivered in three stages through interactive presentations, with some quick questions at the end of each stage to test the user’s knowledge.

A certificate can be downloaded on completion of each module, as proof of RIBA accreditation points obtained.

These modules feature technical guidance, product information and case studies to showcase the potential of Wienerberger’s range of building products.

Future plans for the Knowledge Builder™ portal include regular updates of fresh accredited and non-accredited CPD content to reflect advancements in the industry, new products and further technical know-how.

Annette Forster, Wienerberger’s Marketing Director, commented: “Knowledge Builder™ is a fantastic digital platform which allows us to reach more architects than ever before.

“It means we can deliver the informative and easy to access online CPD content that the industry wants.

“We’d like to encourage architects to try Knowledge Builder™ for themselves and share it amongst their colleagues and peers to increase awareness about this valuable resource.

“We’re interested in engaging with architects and listening to their feedback on what future content they would like to see, so please get in touch via the website.”

Face-to-face sessions delivered by Wienerberger’s team will continue to be part of its CPD offering, with the Knowledge Builder™ platform offering architects with a more flexible online training alternative.
