It comes with no surprise that after spending a lot of 2020 and 2021 in our homes, we’ve found certain things, here and there, that we’d like to change to make our home living better and more suited to our lifestyle. Or, for some, they’ve realised that they want a completely new home altogether and taken on a project home to build the ultimate perfect living space.

Undergoing home improvements is an exciting time - stressful perhaps - but exciting nonetheless. As much as we’d all love for it to be as simple as picking up a drill and hammer, some jobs require a lot more research and planning and multiple people to get involved.

Suppose you’d like to attempt the project yourself or to be involved throughout. In that case, it’s a good idea to increase your knowledge in the area and ensure you’re meeting the correct legal requirements and legislation before you begin revamping your home.

By undertaking a CPD course in construction or the specific area you’d like to learn, such as ‘sub-floor preparation’, for example, you’re giving yourself the knowledge and expertise, and therefore minimising the number of things that can go wrong.

Home Construction Courses

A lot of the time, you’re paying for someone’s knowledge in the area; however, if you’d like to keep costs down and attempt specific jobs yourself, there’s no reason why, without the proper research, you can’t give it a go.

For example, most people would assume they have to reach out to a professional tiler to rip up their old laminate and fit a set of ceramic or porcelain tiles. However, at The CPD Service, our CPD providers have a full range of courses that can cover: ‘how to fit ceramic tiles correctly’, ‘are porcelain or ceramic tiles right for my floor’ and ‘how to avoid ceramic tile failures’, which will give you tips & tricks on how to do the job correctly.

Or, if you’re planning on tackling some smaller but still important jobs in your home, such as finishing floorboards or building a new outhouse in the garden, our CPD providers offer several general DIY/home improvement courses that cover a range of DIY solutions. By enrolling on a more general course, you’ll learn all the hints and tips that’ll turn you into a true DIY professional in no time at all.

Why take a home-improvement course?

If you’re looking to keep costs down, enrolling on a course may save you money in areas where you would have paid for someone else’s knowledge. A CPD course or workshop can show you new ways of making home improvements in your house, which you otherwise may not have thought of. There are also a number of construction or building changes in the home that need to meet specific building regulations. Without the proper research, you may not know what these things are or what regulations need to be followed.

Plus, the satisfaction you get from completing a job with your own two hands is greater than watching someone else do the job for you. So, if you have the time and the motivation, enrolling on a course and jumping into the job yourself can be a great thing.

All the CPD courses available from our CPD providers on the website have been CPD accredited and meet a particular set of requirements for Continuing Professional Development, so you can rest assured knowing that you’re enrolling on a course with that is helpful with correct and up-to-date information.
