NZIBS CPD Workshop Programme 2017

The NZIBS CPD Workshop Programme 2017 is a great way to be involved, to be more informed around new legislation and will help you to understand issues you need to know.

The NZIBS CPD Workshop Programme 2017 caters to those who are new to the industry and to those who are in the construction industry looking for a CPD points refresher or to upskill.

1 hour = 1 CPD point.

We are pleased to share the following training partners for any CPD training in 2017.

There are many benefits to any business owner when undertaking this form of training;

  • This training will provide you with the skills and motivation to develop more and better business practices.
  • The training will help you to better understand your customers and their expectations. For example; learning about the client’s expectations through astute questioning before entering into an agreement.
  • Training is essential for knowledge transfer. It’s very important to share knowledge among your staff.

If only one person has special skills, you’ll have a tough time recouping their knowledge if they suddenly leave the company. Spread knowledge around — it’s like diversifying your investments.

Granted, it may take some time to see a return on your investment, but the long-term gains associated with training make a difference. The short-term expense of a training program ensures you keep qualified and up to date, learn ways to protect your business and productive workers who will help your company succeed.
