Training in the latest techniques is essential to keep up to date in any profession, and updated standards and changes in substrates and materials mean that the tiling industry is no exception.
Tilemaster Adhesives Ltd – Kerakoll Group has put together a schedule of free training days for both flooring and tiling which will help installers learn the latest systems, using the company’s products in their spacious training centre based in easy to access Bromsgrove.
The tiling training is a mixture of practical and theoretical training covering the British Standards, and hints, tips and takeaways on surface preparation and the use of adhesives and grouts, with an introduction to Kerakoll’s H40 gel adhesives and Fugabella Color and Fugalite Bio grout ranges. Courses are being held on 16th February, 20th April and 18th May, with more dates follow.
The flooring training is also a mix of hands on practical and theoretical training. It covers correct practice for subfloor preparation including testing for, and controlling moisture; using primers, and repairing minor imperfections; selecting and applying smoothing compounds; and the use of adhesives. The first courses are being held on 2nd February, 9th March, and 4th May again more dates to follow.
The 2600ft2 Kerakoll Campus has been entirely updated with a dedicated classroom for presentations about the theory behind the systems, and a practical area for demonstrations and hands on training on applications.
In addition to the scheduled programme, the company is offering clients who wish to train their staff the opportunity to arrange training on dates that suit them, including bespoke training on particular needs such as systems for projects they are working on. This free of charge service is part of the company’s policy of supporting its customers wherever possible.
