Two courses on rapid building assessment are now freely available on the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment’s online learning website.
The courses, which support management of buildings in an emergency, are for:
- Chartered professional engineers (structural and geotechnical), senior building officials and senior architects registered by MBIE as tier 2 assessors following the required face-to-face training. Both courses provide refresher training for this audience.
- Chartered professional engineers (structural and geotechnical), building officials, senior architects and emergency support staff seeking self-directed awareness training who may be interested in becoming tier 3 assessors.
