Introduction to Construction Training

Elmhurst together with the Chartered Association of Building Engineers (CABE) are working together to deliver an 'Introduction to Construction' course for energy assessors who want to improve on their knowledge of the construction process and planning. 

Delegates who wish to gain a greater understanding of construction will benefit from attending this course prior to attending any other training courses (such as Energy Assessor training events).

The course has been designed to be a 'Gateway to Construction' and will ensure delegates are better placed to operate within the construction industry and act as advisors to it.

Upon successful completion of the course, Elmhurst members can qualify for a CABE Technician Membership, with the first year of membership included completely free of charge!
