The Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering (CIPHE) has launched two new websites, which will not only give members the latest technical developments in the industry, but also boost their business knowledge on legal, marketing and financial issues.

Named Techtalk and Smarttalk, the respective websites hold webinars and other materials, which have been developed by the CIPHE in conjunction with leading industry manufactures and business advisors.

The Techtalk website features webinars covering:

● Water safety

● Renewables

● Water services

● Heating

● Controls

● Drainage

While the Smarttalk website covers the subjects of:

● Legal matters

● Marketing

● Financial issues

To use the websites, all you need to do is register for free - a process which takes a matter of minutes for each. New content will be added each month to keep the site relevant and to encourage users to continue to use the site.

The CIPHE’s Paul Harmer said, “It has been a pleasure to work on the development of the Techtalk and Smarttalk websites, webinars and resources. The enthusiasm we have received for these videos has been overwhelming. Manufacturers and installers alike have really grasped the power of online webinars and the ability to add to your knowledge and learning, at the click of a button, at a time which suits you.”
