The South African Association of Consulting Engineers (SAACE) has accredited the courses offered by Binnington Copeland & Associates in terms of the requirements introduced in January 2006 for formally recording the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) credits required for ongoing renewal of registration. Binnington Copeland & Associates is a leading provider of training in the fields of contract law, liability and risk, targeted procurement, standard forms of contract – including FIDIC and NEC – dispute avoidance and resolution.
CPD credits must be obtained in at least two of the following categories: Developmental Activities (four credits); Work-based Activities (three credits) and Individual Activities (four credits). Binnington Copeland & Associate’s seminars fit into the Developmental Activities category. “Now, over and above the learning experience we offer, we will also be playing an important practical role for professionals,” says Chris Binnington, managing director of Binnington Copeland & Associates.
Binnington says that it is imperative that a culture of ubiquitous, quality development is created within all professional communities and the CPD system goes a long way to ensuring that this happens.
Binnington Copeland & Associates, founded in 1984, comprises professional engineers, quantity surveyors and building specialists with in-house legal expertise and, apart from its renowned offering of training courses, also offers a wide range of services in commercial and contractual matters to the construction industry.
