New online aluminium fabrications CPD from MCRMA

  • 8 Jun 2020

Aluminium fabrications: a guide to good practice is the latest online CPD from the Metal Cladding & Roofing Manufacturers Association (MCRMA) to be approved by the CPD Certification Service. 

This CPD provides the user with theoretical and practical guidance in the design and specification of aluminium fabrication, including fasteners and sealants.

The CPD discusses the principal approaches of the widely used fabrication fixing methodologies of dead fix and floating fix, examines the effects of thermal movement and provides guidance on correct fastener specification. 

There are now 12 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 been accredited by the CPD Certification Service.
