What some users say....
"RTPI Learn appealed because it is free to use and easy to access. You can log on when you want, dip in and out as you want and you can learn in your own time at your own pace. It also produces a good, checkable record of CPD."
Keith Naylor, RTPI Member
"I've found RTPI Learn really useful. After nearly 40 years in the industry, it's not often I come across something completely new but the viability module was one. It offered a great explanation of what a developer is looking for. It explained the different approaches to development and the financial differences between large and small developers."
Lee Prebble, Planning Consultant
"You can do the modules in your own time, at your own pace, free of charge, and gain valuable CPD hours. It's a brilliant tool to use, especially if you're a contractor working away from home."
Neale Hall, Planning Consultant
