Exceptionally NGS CPD seminars, lectures, workshops and conferences are audio or video recorded for others to hear or see later.
Occasionally we get a copy and some are posted online on VIMEO or YouTube, etc.
It also allows us to repeat an event on-line and allow a larger audience to see and hear the CPD remotely.
When we find relevent and intersting audio or video of Environmental Construction then we will register it.
Here is a collection of recorded seminars and other intersting stuff.
