Bathroom manufacturer Vitra has revealed it will be holding its first continuing professional development – CPD – module approved by the Royal Institute of British Architects – RIBA – which will earn professionals eight points.

The seminar – Bathroom Design and Specification: Ceramic Sanitaryware – will provide a “practical insight into working with ceramic sanitaryware and the specific considerations and processes”, the company said.

The session will cover the characteristics of different ceramic materials, as well as the six-step manufacturing process from preparing raw materials to casting and vitrifying methods, and quality control. The seminar will also touch on regulations involved in sanitary and water installations, and sustainability.

“The purpose of this CPD seminar is to help professionals involved in designing and specifying bathrooms with important areas of consideration like innovations, modern technologies, sustainability and improving sustainability ratings for buildings,” said Vitra marketing manager Margaret Talbot.

Vitra’s tile division has already held three CPD modules, namely Understanding, specifying and designing with tiles; Specifying tiles for the hospitality sector; and Swimming pools with a tile finish.
