The Canterbury Earthquakes that occurred in 2010 and 2011 highlighted one thing very clearly. When a major event occurs in a large populated centre there will always be a shortage of skilled experienced personnel to meet the needs of the people living in those areas — certainly in the short-term.

The New Zealand Institute of Building Surveyors has been working with structural engineers from Fraser Thomas Limited to develop a Seismic Engineering Course for Non-Engineers to up-skill its members in this area. This programme is also being offered to non-members of the Institute.
Please complete the registration form or for further details see the Programme. For any other questions contact Noeline on Ph: 0800 11 34 00 or Sally on Mob: 021 432 711.
