Course Description

Certificate in Built Environment Regulation



The programme aims to afford advanced experience, knowledge and training to fulfil the challenging roles and responsibilities associated with a limited range of Built Environment Regulations in the Irish Construction Industry

This Certificate is designed for a multidisciplinary cohort across the built environment disciplines e.g. Architecture, Engineering, Building Surveying, Architectural Technology, and Construction Management, among others. A multi-disciplinary cohort will be beneficial to the programme as it will provide a cross-pollination of ideas, shared experiences and appreciation for each others roles and responsibilities in the Built Environment.

It is designed to meet the postgraduate and continuing professional development needs of these disciplines, to develop competence in these areas by facilitating knowledge gained through training and applied experience. It will be particularly beneficial to new entrant graduates who have recently entered the work force in the last one to three years. It will also be beneficial to lifelong learners and more experienced professionals as Continuing Professional Development, up-skilling, retraining, and as a refresher course.

Furthermore, the programme can be undertaken on a module-by-module basis, if so desired, by accumulating credits. Alternatively, a programme of shorter duration can be commenced, with the view to continuing to complete the Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma or MSc in Built Environment Regulation at some point in the future. This flexibility is designed to accommodate an adult working population. The difference between this qualification and the Masters and Postgraduate Diploma is that there is no research capstone module requirement and only a limited number of Technical Guidance Documents are covered in the syllabus.

Students can choose to take the course as full time (6 months) or part-time (1 year).
