You Can Discount on Me

BESA has brokered an agreement with CIBSE that will make its professional level training courses available to the former’s members at a 10% discount.

Under the arrangement, BESA members will be provided with a special weblink and code enabling them to apply online for CIBSE training and claim their discount.

“This is a very positive move and a further demonstration of the collaboration between our two bodies,” said Peter Rimmer, Director of Employment Affairs and Skills, BESA. “It also makes the important point that when it comes to training, BESA does not just operate at craft level. We recognise that professional level training and knowledge is also fundamental to what our members do.”

BESA has recognised that it has become increasingly important that its training reach reflects the growing sophistication of projects, wider collaboration in the supply chain and technical developments such as the greater use of digital design and data management. In this respect CIBSE is seen as operating across the full spectrum of training in the building services industry

“Collaboration between organisations is vital to better building performance, especially in training because it increases the skills of engineers and raises standards across the whole industry,” explained Rowan Crowley, MD, CIBSE Services. “We are very much looking forward to working with BESA in this way."

The association will receive regular updates from CIBSE and publicise to members the forthcoming programme of courses, which cover electrical services, energy efficiency, FM, fire safety, lighting, mechanical services, project management and water services and public health.
