2022 Online Webinar CPD Presentation Dates:

25 August 2022, 12 pm: External Non-Load Bearing Wall and Façade Framing Systems

22 September 2022, 12 pm: Seismic Design for Internal Wall Partitions and Suspended Ceilings

Who should attend?

  • Architects who want/need to expand their design skills and understand practical methods for external facades and the use of lightweight steel
  • Architects who require formal CPD Points
  • Architects who are looking for design solutions that offer project efficiencies

During the one hour Rondo CPD Presentation, we will take you through one or two major projects, explain the briefs, and detail on how the system solved intricate technical designs and provided onsite efficiencies.

Both projects benefited from using lightweight steel in the construction of external wall framing. This includes greater wall heights, ability to meet wind load requirements and quicker installations reducing labour time on site and offering significant cost savings to these projects.

Not only that, for your convenience, we can conduct a CPD Presentation at your office or local Rondo site or via an online webinar. 

After you have completed the course we will present you with a Rondo Certificate of Achievement, which has been approved by both AIS and AIA.

When it comes to updating your CPD points, with Rondo you can’t lose. All you have to do is register today and we will do the rest.
