Your Details


This one day training course will help you to recognise the principle differences between Eurocode 2 and BS8110 and equip you with the skills necessary to undertake the design of basic reinforced concrete structures to Eurocode 2. Emphasis is placed on buildings and the provisions of the Part 1.1: General rules and rules for buildings of EN 1992.

For each of the principal aspects covered, this programme usefully provides background to the structural behaviour, explanation of the codified treatment including departure from existing practice (BS 8110), illustrating with worked examples where appropriate.

This training course has been mapped to:
  • UK-SPEC Competence A1: Maintain and extend a sound theoretical approach in enabling the introduction and exploitation of new and advancing technology
  • ICE Key Attribute 1C: Ability to maintain and extend a sound theoretical approach in enabling the introduction and exploitation of new and advancing technology


Training courses on set dates, in ICE Training venues across the country. Suitable for those looking to attend a training course and share knowledge and practical experiences with like-minded others in an interactive learning environment.


Bespoke training programmes. These are delivered by our tutors at a time, in a location and based on a curriculum completely tailored to your needs. Ideal for organisations that have several employees wishing to take training in the same subject area, and/or have organisation-specific ideas for learning and development.
