Continuing the success of its practical timber training courses - and to continue its commitment to educate the industry – BM TRADA has expanded the programme of dates and locations for its practical series of training sessions.
The new courses build on the success of the training sessions introduced last year. The 2014 courses attracted a wide range of delegates, including contractors, merchants and timber workers, from the shop floor right up to senior management. Feedback from delegates was extremely positive.
“The need to train and refresh is a great advantage to employees and employers and to keep up-to-date with new standards,” one individual commented after a course last year. BM TRADA has also responded to this feedback by introducing more topics and by making the courses more available to individuals around the country.
This new programme includes two levels of training - introductory and intermediate - on a wide range of timber subjects. And, for the first time, BM TRADA has taken the courses onto the road, with three regional locations – Edinburgh, Leeds and London – for its introductory softwoods and hardwoods, and panel products courses.
Each course is highly practical and include quizzes and hands on experience with timber samples and are suitable for staff at all levels from the shop floor to director level.
The introductory courses will be run in the morning and afternoon to enable delegates to attend two courses in one day (for a full list of dates and locations, see below). They will cover the following topics: engineered timber products; panel products; timber in exterior uses; timber in fire; general timber; and introduction to hardwood and softwood. The courses cost £99 + VAT (£74 for TRADA members). For full details on the introductory courses click here
The intermediate courses will only be held at BM TRADA’s High Wycombe headquarters and will take place over a day. Subjects covered will be: timber frame construction; hardwoods; softwoods; timber in exterior uses; engineered timber products; wood based panels; Chain of Custody; and timber fire doors explained.
