Minimum 8 delegates required. TRADA members receive discounts
Duration - ½ day

Either or both of these courses should follow on from the full day course 'Timber behaviour and properties'.  They both complete the foundation needed before attending the seven product specific courses listed on the next page.

The courses are highly practical and to maximise the actual content learned include a wide range of quizzes, samples, tasks and group working.  Because the courses are delivered in-house they can be tailored significantly around the questions and areas of interest of the delegates.

The courses are designed for 8-20 delegates.  More than one company can provide the delegates if required.

Attendees will be given the confidence and instruction on how to find out more for themselves using TRADA resources.
