Learn & Earn CPD Points

Are you confident you know how to specify Plasterboard linings for medium and high rise buildings? BGC Plasterboard can help you learn how to meet all relevant ISO, AS and BCA standards and codes.

Our presentations are designed to run for 1 hour and will gain you 1 CPD point. We have technical experts who have been approved by Refuel to present to you in each state of Australia. BGC is an Australian based construction business and we have been manufacturing Plasterboard for over 20 years so we have an extensive knowledge of all relevant Australian Standards. We’d like to share that knowledge with you and further your understanding of Plasterboard, its qualities, benefits and how it can meet your specification requirements.
