Providers Network offers a helping hand

Readers of the 28 August issue highlighting access issues will want to know that the RIBA CPD Providers Network can offer seminars relating to inclusive design and the DDA.

With their RIBA-assessed and approved, high-quality seminars, network providers can be relied upon to offer professional advice and guidance on a host of specialist topics - helping specifiers to meet the demanding requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) is no exception. The implications of the DDA are enormous. To help, the RIBA has a leaflet for specifiers working in this sector, detailing the range of related CPD Providers Network topics available.

Companies belonging to the network are required, where relevant, to touch on accessibility issues as they relate to their product areas. Some providers concentrate on the DDA wholly, while others do so more peripherally through other topics.

The RIBA CPD Providers Network exists to encourage the highest standards of professionalism and improve the technical knowledge of those working within the design, building and construction markets. First introduced nearly 10 years ago, there are now more than 400 providers on the network, offering a range of seminars covering many topics in the architectural and building products and services markets.

If you would like a copy of the mailer, contact Tina Satola, CPD marketing executive, on tel 020 7307 3797, fax: 020 7307 3767, email tina. satola@ inst. riba. org and ask for the DDA 2004 leaflet.

Joni Renee Tyler, head of continuing professional development, RIBA
