CPD Training

We run free "Lunch & Learns" (CPD training sessions) from Dorking, Oxted and Reigate council offices. Aimed at local agents, architects, engineers and contractors, they cover the latest techniques and innovations within the building industry, as well as changes to the building regulations. CPD certificates are issued following each session by the presenter.

Informal and friendly, Lunch & Learns start at 12.30pm and last about an hour. A buffet lunch follows when attendees can network and chat to the presenter and our own team of surveyors. Details of our current programme are given below:

If you would like to join us at our next Lunch & Learn session or be added to our regular CPD email invitation list, please contact Sue Daly at
