About the Training Academy

The Training Academy is the Institute's strategic commitment to its educational and training platform.

Established in 2007, the Academy has evolved to provide the formal, vocational and practical skills required to gain and maintain Building Surveyor status.

Through its core knowledge, advanced training and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) based courses the Training Academy's goal is to provide qualifications support and professional skills maintenance throughout ones working life.

The Training Academy's investment into the sector and support for the career development of those directly involved in Building Surveying and their employers (the majority being Building Control Authorities) sets it apart from commercial operations, whose goals are purely economic.

The Institute's goal is to improve the competency of all building professionals in New Zealand and to support future generations entering the sector.
