Just Add Popcorn work with specifiers and homeowners get the most from their living environment. Not too long ago a telephone point in the entrance hallway and a TV socket in the living room were about all people expected. Central heating was new to many and two-way switching for the stair lighting was seen as a nice touch. How times have changed!

This RIBABIID and RIAI Accredited CPD (Continuing Professional Development) will help you understand the basics, so you can talk intelligently with the client and the other members of the design team. It will show you what is possible, describe some alternatives and explain how to incorporate the various systems without detracting from your design. You’ll have a good grasp of modern best practice for low-voltage systems in the home, and feel more confident specifying these systems.

The CPD will help build your vocabulary and you should discover some simple tips to help you get it right. Most importantly you’ll know who to ask if you need help in a particular area – this guide provides points of contact for detailed support and further assistance.

If you are a Design Professional (Architect, Specifier, Developer, M&E or Interior Designer) and would like to request further information on RIBA & BIID CPD training then please call us.
