Canham Training Services
For some time now, we have encouraged our Engineers and Surveyors to share their knowledge with colleagues, and discuss a range of technical subjects. We undertake weekly internal Continuing Professional Development (CPD) sessions with a programme of relevant subjects and all staff are encouraged to research, reinforce their own knowledge and communicate this to their colleagues.
In 2021, we rolled this service out to our clients and are thrilled to be launching Canham Training Services.
Structural Engineering, Civil Engineering and Building Surveying are vast professions with many specialisms and areas of interest. We are able to deliver a range of CPD sessions to our clients, a few examples are listed below:
Introduction to Structural Engineering
Loads, forces, structural behaviour, elements, introduction to stability, key principles.
The general principle of stability, methods of achieving stability, different structural forms.
Ground investigation, principles of investigation, key information, how to interpret, challenges, risks.
Ground Water in Construction
Impact on construction and design, solutions, risks.
Principles, methods, interface between temporary and permanent, responsibility.
Principles, methods, risk, challenges, solutions for different situations.
Steelwork and Buildability
Techniques, design, sequencing, practical considerations.
Methods of achieving stability. Simple structures and more complex buildings.
Dealing with an old structure. Blending modern methods with old building fabric. Appraising older buildings.
Discussing examples, when things go wrong, how can they be avoided, things to look out for.
Many of our clients are fellow Construction Professionals, and specific, technical CPD sessions will help to broaden knowledge and interest.
The above examples represent a selection of subjects we can cover. If there is a specific subject required, this can be discussed and delivered.
It is important to us that we inspire and support continued professional development in our community within the construction industry, share expertise and make an impact to people’s learning whether that is developing new skills or by just being curious to a different way of thinking.
