EnviroVent, one of the UK’s leading ventilation manufacturers, is celebrating its CPD (Continuous Professional Development) course: Ventilation Strategies & Best Practice Compliance becoming CIBSE (Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers) accredited.


CIBSE is a professional association offering expertise in the Building Services Industry that represents housebuilders, consultants and engineers, a collection of people for which good ventilation knowledge and expertise is vitally important.


EnviroVent’s CPD outlines the roadmap to Ventilation Compliance and considers the current environmental and political drivers in ensuring good indoor air quality through efficient ventilation. It is delivered by an EnviroVent ventilation specialist in the form of an hour-long seminar, which covers the key areas on the subject of ensuring adequate ventilation. This includes technical theory around the ventilation strategies of Approved Document F and the minimum requirements of Approved Document L.


The CPD covers the following topics:


  • The health impacts of poor ventilation and indoor air quality
  • Technical theory and specification – Approved Document Parts F and L and the ventilation strategies
  • The levels of competency required for installation and key compliance documents
  • Best Practice installation, commissioning and design of ventilation systems
  • Long-term aftercare and maintenance of ventilation systems


Rebecca McLean, Marketing and Product Director at EnviroVent, explains: “It is great news that our CPD ventilation course is now CIBSE approved.  It is the ideal course for building engineers, architects, housebuilders andother building services professions to gain the knowledge they need to make accurate specifications of ventilation products.”

“Now it’s available to both RIBA and CIBSE members, there is a great opportunity to expand professionals’ knowledge of ventilation products.”

EnviroVent’s CPD courses deliver informative and highly relevant know-how on using the most effective and energy efficient ventilation solutions to ventilate homes.  All attendees will receive a CPD certificate.


In addition to offering CPDs, EnviroVent has a dedicated ventilation showroom at its training centre in Harrogate. The showroom contains working installations of the various ventilation units, where the ducting and airflows can clearly be seen. Specifiers and other visitors are invited to make an appointment and receive a demonstration of the operation of ventilation products and how these help to reduce humidity levels and prevent condensation and mould from forming in a home.


EnviroVent’s training centre in Harrogate is also approved to deliver NICEIC ventilation courses.  The company is also a Patron of CIBSE and collaborates on a wide range of initiatives driven by the association.


EnviroVent offers a range of Positive Input Ventilation (PIV), Mechanical Extract Ventilation (MEV) and Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR) solutions to the new build and refurbishment sectors. Its award-winning products are UK manufactured and can be installed by its own dedicated team of nationwide installation engineers, who also provide after-sales support.


Members of CIBSE are required by the Code of Professional Conduct to maintain their professional competence and carry out Continuous Professional Development. The Institution provides clear guidance and support for professional development, enabling members to develop in their career.

REHAU has launched a new CPD course for professionals who want to learn more about the specification and installation of acoustic soil and waste pipework solutions.

Fully accredited by CIBSE, the new course introduces best practice in the design and specification of soil and waste pipe systems to ensure quieter installations. Acoustic pipework is particularly important in multioccupancy buildings, such as residential accommodation, care homes and hospitals, where noisy pipework can have a detrimental effect on the building’s users.

The course opens with the fundamentals of acoustics, explaining noise transfer and pollution, before moving on to design considerations and standards. In this section, attendees on the course will find out more about the requirements for acoustic pipework in the Building Regulations, the market expectations for noise pollution in different settings and how acoustic pipes are tested.

The CPD course touches on fire safety considerations and BIM Level 2 before going on to share practical guidance about which pipe materials and joints perform better acoustically and how to achieve more successful installations.

REHAU is well placed to advise course attendees on acoustic pipework installations as the company has been manufacturing acoustic soil and waste pipes for over 20 years and supply it in 37 countries. Earlier this year, REHAU launched its RAUPIANO acoustic pipework solution to the UK market.

Drew Clough from REHAU said: “Since we introduced the RAUPIANO system to the UK, we’ve had a lot of interest from industry professionals who want to know whether it’s right for their projects and how to design and install it. We’ve pulled all that information together in one CIBSE-accredited course to answer those questions and provide the necessary technical information to inform the specification process. It’s absolutely free to attend, and in our opinion, it’s a must for anyone involved in the design and installation of soil and waste pipes, particularly in multi-occupancy buildings.”

REHAU’s acoustic soil and waste pipework CPD course is available at a customer’s premises across the UK and can be booked via the link
