Dear members, 

We understand that during this time of remote working there is an increased need for online webinars which can help fulfil your CPD requirements.

Our partners at the National House-Building Council (NHBC) are delivering a series of free webinars which are available to all CABE members. At this current time, NHBC are not adding their webinars for post-viewing, so we recommend trying to catch them live. They will be doing duplicates of some of their webinars, so keep an eye out if you missed one. 


Please see below for all details on dates and booking your slot and note that all times shown are for British Summer Time unless stated otherwise.

A reminder that you can log your CPD hours with our new CABE Community – if you have yet to set up your profile, please read this short post which gives you all the info you need to get started.

Excellent Idea. Are any of the webinars available for download or the notes from the webinars at least?

Free webinars for cpd needs much appreciated, but can the new CABE web page have an easy to find (top bar-under drop down training ) members cpd log facility button, , to make life easier to log all the efforts after such, in these very challenging Covid -19 times. I personally wish you, all the team and members and their loved ones well and keep safe. Many thanks for CABE free initiatives, much appreciated in these times.
