Technical Training Days are delivered by LCRIG to enable members of the ‘highways community’ to come together to learn.
LCRIG works in partnership with industry specific associations and accrediting bodies to facilitate the sharing of technical expertise with the council representatives attending. Recent Technical Training Days have been held in conjunction with the Road Surface Treatment Association (RSTA) and the Institute of Highway Engineers (IHE) whereby 30 councils (135 attendees) were provided with the technical expertise from the road surface treatment supply chain from 14 speakers on 14 specialist topics. The first event took place in Blackpool and the second in Oxfordshire.
Refreshments and catering are provided throughout the day, attendance is free of charge and attendees leave with a CPD certificate awarded by the IHE.
For further details about the next Technical Training Day due to be hosted by York City Council and held in York, or to enquire about LCRIG facilitating a Technical Training Day for a specific topic or specialism for your council and neighbouring councils, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
LCRIG actively organise small CPD seminars for up to 15 attendees with presentations from between 1 to 5 organisations. Just provide LCRIG with the topic(s) required, the venue and the date. We will send a list of the organisations providing the relevant products and services. We will then invite the selected organisations to attend and present. We will also request the required CPD accreditation from the most relevant association (Partner Member).
