What does it mean to have an architecture or engineering career today? More specifically, what does it mean in a world where careers can span 60 years, even as the half-life of learned skills continues to fall to only about five years? In the past, employees learned to gain skills for a career; now the career itself is a journey of learning. 

Not every architect or engineer is experienced in the use of timber and of mass timber in particular. The specialist knowledge on offer from the Mass Timber Academy can not only help you to fulfil a large part of your annual CPD obligations but, more importantly, provide you with the essential information and support you need to design and specify with confidence and to play your part in changing the way we build to create a more sustainable environment.
