MCRMA extends its online CPD programme

  • 3 May 2022

The Metal Cladding & Roofing Manufacturers Association (MCRMA) announces the addition of a new CPD module to its online CPD programme. 

The CPD module Cavity barriers for ventilated rainscreen façades sets out to consider the key questions about cavity barriers and offers guidance for their correct specification, including an understanding of the difference between a fire stop and a cavity barrier; the regulations that apply to the different countries of the UK and the types of cavity barriers used in ventilated rainscreen facades. 

Effective fire stopping and cavity barriers are essential to restrict the spread of smoke or flames, and to maintain compartmentation. Cavity fire barriers are an essential element of fire protection. 


There are now 16 approved CPDs available on the MCRMA website; the course material is studied offline with an online assessment component to verify knowledge.

The modules represent an anticipated 60 – 120 minutes of professional development, and following successful completion of the CPD, a certificate is available for immediate download.

All modules have accreditation by the CPD Certification Service. The CPDs are available to anyone seeking to develop their knowledge and skills within the metal building envelope sector.

More information about the online CPD courses is available at
