A series of free-to-attend workshops complementing the ethos of the leading construction event of India, including a diverse set of tools from some of the most exciting case studies, powerful keynotes to captivating debates to put a spotlight on what’s new and relevant, address the challenges of construction and takeaway practical solutions for a better future of construction in India.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is the term used to describe the commitment to lifelong learning. Employers and institutions across industries are increasingly adopting a more structured approach to learning in order to retain key staff and develop the skills and knowledge in the organisation to maintain a sustainable and competitive advantage.



Why is CPD accreditation important?

CPD accreditation is important because it ensures that courses provided adhere to the highest educational standards and international benchmarks of quality and learning.



How does it work?

There is no fixed approach to CPD and different professional institutes and associations will have their own interpretation of courses and requirements. The majority set an annual target, which is defined by the accrual of CPD hours through attending training, seminars, workshops and conferences. These CPD hours are then converted to points, units or credits. It is up to the individual to keep track of their hours, ensure their CPD records are up-to-date and that the courses meet the requirements of their professional body or association.



How does CPD benefit you?

CPD benefits individuals by fostering a culture of continuous personal improvement, skills development and knowledge sharing. It helps to ensure that individuals are kept informed, up-skilled and proficient to change in practice. CPD-certified training, seminars, workshops and conferences are also a significant benefit to those constricted by time, resource and budget as they can offer an affordable, time-efficient opportunity to develop skills and knowledge.

All delegates attending a workshop at The Big 5 Construct India will receive a certificate of attendance. All workshops are free to attend, but places are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Be sure to register early to avoid missing out.

Choose from 14 CPD-certified workshops and conference sessions covering the latest hot topics including project management, BIM, LEED, Smart Cities.
