CPD - Continuing professional development

We are passionate about sharing our knowledge and expertise.

Our business specialises in indoor climate solutions and delivering comfort to occupants of a wide range of buildings. We offer a range of CPD’s covering key technologies used to heat, cool and ventilate buildings including Radiant Heating and Cooling and Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery.

All you have to do is:

  1. Choose the most suitable CPD – we can book in as many as you require
  2. Agree a suitable day – we need 1 hour – with Q&A (over a lunch period)
  3. Book a meeting room at your offices – we will come to you

With Building Regulations calling for increasingly airtight homes, and fuel prices rising, effective and efficient heat recovery ventilation is vital.

The Zehnder CPD explains everything you need to know about heat recovery in order to successfully specify it into High Code Level homes and Passive House projects.

The course has been independently assessed and accredited by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and aims to enable recipients to champion healthier, more energy-efficient and more comfortable buildings for the benefit of the homeowner, the community and the environment.

Learning objectives

  1. Understand the key principles of heat recovery ventilation and how it works
  2. Learn about what constitutes a High Code Level and Passive House dwelling
  3. Understand how to identify the correct heat recovery system for the project
  4. Recognise the necessary features to achieve compliance with High Code Levels or Passive House standards
  5. Be aware of best practice when specifying heat recovery ventilation for domestic properties

Target audience

Housebuilders, Architects, Mechanical Engineers and Consultants

  • RIBA certified
  • Duration: 1 hour + Q&A time
  • Location: Customer Premises
  • Free of charge

The issue of cooling is gaining greater prominence in today’s society, as buildings experience heating issues such as humidity, overheating and solar shading which impact on the well-being of occupants. The Zehnder Radiant Conditioning CPD looks at the different cooling solutions that are available, their capabilities, limitations and the benefits that can be gained from utilising radiant conditioning solutions.

Good practice that can be adopted for system design is also discussed, as well as application of conditioning solutions in varied environments.

Learning objectives

  1. Understanding of cooling issues that pertain within buildings today
  2. Detailing of cooling solutions that are available
  3. Different cooling solutions and how they work
  4. The benefits that can be gained by radiant conditioning
  5. Understanding of system design options
  6. Examples of cooling solutions

Target audience

Engineers (all levels), Energy Managers, Specifiers, Facility Managers and Architects.

No prior knowledge of radiant heating and cooling needed.

  • RIBA certified
  • CIBSE certified
  • Duration: 1 hour + Q&A time
  • Location: Customer premises

The ability to economically heat buildings, whilst also considering the environmental impact, is becoming more and more important. This is especially so in large spaces such as offices, warehouses, sports centres, retail outlets, schools and hospitals where energy usage is high. We spend virtually three quarters of our lives in buildings: the indoor climate, temperature and air quality has a considerable influence on our general well being. A range of options are available when choosing heating systems, however, one that is often overlooked and perhaps not so readily understood is radiant heating. The radiant heating CPD from Zehnder examines the technology further and examines the benefits the system can offer.

Learning objectives

  1. An understanding of radiant heat and how it works
  2. How resultant/perceived temperature affects us
  3. The features and benefits of radiant heating
  4. Comparisons between radiant and convective systems
  5. Basic system design considerations
  6. The concept and technicalities of radiant cooling

Target audience

Engineers (all levels), Energy Managers, Specifiers, Facility Managers and Architects.
