Lorient launches online CPD with Academy e-learning

Leading door seal manufacturer Lorient is delighted to launch an online RIBA approved CPD module ‘Performance Door Design: The Basics of Sound Reduction’.

Developing professional skills and keeping knowledge up-to-date is an ongoing challenge; Lorient’s online module offers architects and those in the construction industry the flexibility to learn and claim CPD points whenever they want. The module which is independently certified by RIBA can be accessed through Academy e-learning, which is a portal which features a whole host of freely-available CPD and e-Learning material for the construction industry. Go to:

The session considers the nature of sound and the importance of acoustic containment to improve the quality of the built environment: preserving privacy as well as excluding unwanted noise. It also explains regulatory requirements including Approved Document E to the Building Regulations (England & Wales); British Standards that relate to acoustic performance; and effective design of door assemblies for acoustic performance, including door construction and the influence of sealing systems.

In addition to the online service, Lorient delivers both ‘Performance Door Design: The Basics of Sound Reduction’ along with ‘The Role and Performance of Fire and Smoke Resisting Door Assemblies’ CPDs in a more traditional face to face format, at a designated workplace or venue. If CPD certification is not required, presentations can be tailored to suit a wide variety of audiences, including client companies, building contractors, distributors, construction industry groups and trade associations.

To access the new Lorient CPD module please visit and fill out the simple free registration process.
