We offer a wide range of training courses, networks and events on Building Services and the Built Environment. If you can't physically come to one of our locations, you can still take advantage of our expertise by registering for one of our regular webinars, from wherever you are in the world.

Our Building Services and Built Environment training courses, delivered by BSRIA engineers and associates, have been developed over a number of years with many based on our published best practice guides. Our networks, events and webinars offer opportunities for learning and networking on the latest key issues impacting our industry.

All open BSRIA training courses scheduled until the end of August 2020 have been postponed. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide regular updates on future training dates as the situation develops.  BSRIA recognises the increased uncertainty that Coronavirus (COVID-19) is causing and the safety of our customers and employees is our highest priority.
