Scottish construction forum launches free digital courses

The Scottish Construction Leadership Forum (CLF) has launched a suite of free continuous professional development (CPD) modules on the subjects of digital construction, net zero, and retrofitting.

The courses are being hosted on the Built Environment – Smarter Transformation (BE-ST) website, whom CLF worked with to develop the material.

Included in the suite of courses is Understanding Digital Construction by BE-ST; Introduction to Retrofit by the Association for Environment Conscious Building; and a course on timber technologies and innovation by Edinburgh Napier University.

The launch follows on from CLF’s Scottish data dashboard, unveiled last month, as well as its Built Environment Workforce Development Portal, a guide to reskilling and upskilling.

Kirsty Duncan, BE-ST associate impact manager for the digital team, said: “The modules will hopefully benefit the sector through educators sharing their learnings with further students/colleagues and industry allowing for these technologies and skills and practices to become more adopted within industry.”

She added the courses will be “short and to the point” and will include case studies, videos and real-life scenarios. They are free of charge and users will be able to study at their own pace, and certificates will be awarded on completion.
