Learn & Earn CPD Points
Are you confident you know how to specify Fibre Cement linings for medium and high rise buildings? BGC Fibre Cement can help you learn how to meet all relevant ISO, AS and BCA standards and codes.
Our presentations are designed to run for 1 hour and will gain you 1 CPD point. We have technical experts who have been approved by Refuel to present to you in each state of Australia. BGC is an Australian based construction business and we have been manufacturing Fibre Cement for over 20 years so we have an extensive knowledge of all relevant Australian Standards. We’d like to share that knowledge with you and further your understanding of Fibre Cement, its qualities, benefits and how it can meet your specification requirements.
There are 2 modules and we recommend attending Module 1A first as this will give you a solid grounding of knowledge of how Fibre Cement is manufactured, how it is installed and how it is finished. Module 2 dives deeper into the standards applicable such as fire, acoustic and waterproofing.
The following presentations pertain to architectural design in all regions of Australia and across all sectors such as residential, commercial, medical, education and recreation.
