Free CPD Seminars
The CPD Certification Service encourages the provision and assists in the dissemination of high quality, independently certified Continuing Personal/Professional Development (CPD) throughout a wide range of industry sectors.
Our CPD Seminar presentation is a tool which companies can use to enhance the knowledge of their people about the seriousness of invasive weeds, especially Japanese knotweed and giant hogweed and about the types of solutions that are available.
CPD certification is very highly regarded within the industry and it demonstrates TCM’s high standards of knowledge and professionalism on the subject; to date, we have undertaken over 100 seminars across the country and all are taught by an expert located in your region.
This type of training has appealed to consultants, contractors, civil engineers, architects and house builders. A seminar can be presented at a date convenient to your organisation, and usually takes place at lunchtime, lasting no longer than 45 minutes. We are confident that you will find our seminar of interest.
Both the RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) and RICS (Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors) approve our presentation and we work closely with the organisations to ensure all it reflects the needs of their members.
Our current seminar covers the following topics:
- Learn to identify Japanese knotweed and giant hogweed, the two invasive and non native plants that you are likely to come across when undertaking surveys that could affect the time, cost and environmental targets of any development.
- Understand the implications of the amendments to the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 made in April 2010 and how other legislation, including the Environmental Protection Act 1990 affect the way that these plants can be dealt with.
- The seminar shows how to identify possible constraints to development and examine the risk to the environment posed by each species. It then looks at ways to remove these barriers through early identification, client focused management and innovative eradication programs, providing solutions for different timescales, sites and budgets.
