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 sayhello@buildingourskills.co.uk and we can discuss your specific requirements and how we can customise our courses to include your specific window and door systems.

Our full 2021 Programme of Practical Training Courses will be announced shortly
