The UK’s leading providers of Continuing Professional Development for construction professionals


DCE are the leading providers of CPD for UK construction professionals for this simple reason – we provide MORE than any other organisers!

Continuing Professional Development was introduced in 1993. In October of that year we staged our very first CPD event and, since then, have delivered some 25,000 hours of training and education at numerous venues across the UK and Ireland.

ALL DCE events are offered completely FREE OF CHARGE to visitors.

The events are financed by the companies delivering the seminar presentations.

Most of our speakers have specialist products or services which outperform the required Building Regulations or Building Standards. These events allow companies opportunities to deliver their technical message and help keep busy constructional professionals TECHNICALLY UPDATED.

DCE is a BUILDING KNOWLEDGE EXCHANGE and our mission is to deliver as much technical information as possible.
