Where design goals or site conditions require a more tailored design, engineers may not be able to comply with the NCC Deemed-to-Satisfy (DTS) Provisions. In these cases, a Performance Solution is needed.

Our new one-hour online continuing professional development (CPD) course helps build an understanding of performance-based design solutions. Performance Solutions allows engineers to explore innovative design elements, save costs, and use standards not referenced by the NCC.

What to expect from the course

This course has been developed for engineers to provide an industry relevant and engaging learning opportunity.

With the complex nature of engineering, it is essential that engineers recognise the Governing Requirements when developing a Performance Solution to comply with the NCC.

The course details `where and when’ an engineer might use a performance-based approach. There are examples and case studies provided along the way to highlight key ideas. It also outlines how to use the Performance Solution process, A2.2(4), which came into effect from 1 July 2021.

You’ll gain knowledge of how to prepare a performance-based design brief, how to undertake appropriate analysis and evaluation of results, and then how to bring everything together in the final report.

How to purchase the course

The course is available at an introductory price of $44 for a limited time only.

Once purchased it will be available in your NCC CPD member profile, ready for you to complete at a time and pace that suits you.
