CPD Seminars by Häfele

Hafele joined the RIBA CPD network providers in September 2006, with the main objective being to promote the correct specification to the decision makers and specifiers within the UK architectural and construction industry.

Our first seminar ‘The What, Why and Where of Sliding Door Gear’ approved in 2006 was extremely popular being presented to Architect practices across the UK and Ireland.  We have since gone on to release a further 4 seminars, and are involved in 12-15 RIBA roadshows each year in addition to presenting at other venues. 

We do not hold minimum attendance figures which we believe contributes to their popularity, and have also presented to other construction professionals including Clerk of Works, Facility Managers, Glazing Project Managers amongst others.

The duration for each seminar is approx. 45 minutes plus questions.  Please find details of the seminars offered below:
