Practical training is key to delivering a skilled workforce.  Our vision is to train the industry’s new entrants, as well as existing installers by offering outstanding training to elevate their skills to the highest levels

Some things for you to know…

  • All our practical training courses are accredited
  • They are delivered by trainers with vast industry knowledge
  • All our trainers are formally qualified to deliver training
  • Our courses cover the techniques, regulations and materials relevant to the subject matter
  • As you would expect with practical training, all our courses are very much hands on, supported by theoretical training



So what courses do we offer?

Our practical training courses include window and door installation, surveying, health and safety on site, safe handling of materials,  working at height, tilt and turn maintenance, curtain wall installation, and building regulation compliance.  New courses will be added regularly.

Can the practical training courses be made bespoke to certain window and door systems

Yes they can.  We believe that training should be as meaningful as possible so that installers are trained in the techniques and knowledge relevant to the windows and doors they are installing day in day out.

If you are a systems house, a trade frame supplier, or a fabricator with in house installers, simply get in touch through the form on this page or by emailing us and we can discuss your specific requirements and how we can customise our courses to include your specific window and door systems.
