The course is suitable for anyone interested in becoming an access auditor, regardless of the level of construction knowledge and experience, but equally will suit more experienced construction professionals seeking to branch out into this field.

As part of the course, an audit format is provided as well as supporting reference material to assist you going forward. The aim of the course is to enable you to complete audits of simple public buildings and to provide a solid basis for the development of a career in auditing. Upon successful completion of the course we will provide you with a CPD certificate. The course provides a minimum of 12 hours CPD.

The course is delivered by Ian Eggleton, a Chartered Building Surveyor and Consultant Member of the National Register of Access Consultants, with more than 15 years experience in the field. Ian has worked for clients such as HSBC Bank, HMV and Visit Heart of England Tourist Board to name but a few, so has a wealth of experience to share with delegates.
