How is this training assessed?

This is a non-accredited training programme, installation skills and competence is assessed against industry standards on an informal basis with a certificate of attendance provided on completion.


How will you train?

The development of your installation skills and knowledge in our training workshop and training classroom will require you to attend our training centre for either 10 mornings or 5 days, typically this would be over a 5-week period.


However, we fully understand how difficult it can be to commit to a course or training that requires attendance at a training centre or college on fixed dates and times, therefore we offer a more flexible approach to training for those of you who have busy lifestyles, have other commitments or simply cannot take time off from work.


We aim to provide this training on a flexible basis with attendance being programmed at mutually agreed times to meet your needs rather than the other way around.

We provide all necessary tools, test equipment and reference publications but you will need to provide a pair of suitable safety shoes or boots.
