Fastrack online CPD learning modules are a great way to find out about new products and at the same time gain valuable CPD points.
For example, today I was looking at innovative building products that enhance sustainability and reduce energy costs.
Via Fastrack CPD online I learned about the Colorcoat Renew SC facade system from Tata.
This facade system provides a free source of energy that can save up to 50% on heating bills.
Colorcoat Renew SC incorporates a micro perforated solar collector, which is installed as an additional skin onto a new or existing structure, creating a cavity between the wall and the pre-finished steel skin.
During the 13 minute CPD video learning module I answered multiple choice questions to confirm I had understood the information.
I was rewarded with a certificate that instantly confirmed I had answered the questions correctly and had gained CPD points.
Here is a link to take a look, learn, and gain your own CPD points.
