CPD seminars and other roles at Peter Cox

Richard can often be found travelling the length and breadth of the country delivering his much sought after and in-demand Continuing Professional Development (CPD) seminars. He delivers these presentations to Architects, Engineers, Building Surveyors, and other property professionals seeking to expand their knowledge of issues such as damp control, woodworm, dry rot and timber repairs.

  • Delivering training and product knowledge to team members
  • Undertaking technical surveys
  • Responding to technical complaints
  • Creating and editing technical documents
  • Meeting with suppliers to discuss new products, innovations and bring to launch
