Fensa launches Training Academy
A Training Academy with courses tailored specifically for the fenestration industry has been launched by Fensa in partnership with accredited training company Total Support.
The courses, available exclusively to Fensa Approved Installers, are designed to cover all skill sets and jobs within the sector, and all levels of experience. They range from short two-hour courses on safety, building regulations and basic fenestration installation to full NVQ Diplomas in glazing through to construction management.
Entry level courses will introduce those that are new to the industry to everything from health and safety to complete window and door installation with practical experience, giving new staff a great grounding for a successful career and offering companies the competitive edge when it comes to attracting, developing and retaining the best people for their business. The duration of the shorter courses – starting at just two to four hours – means staff can be inducted to the industry or expand their skills with the minimum of cost, time and inconvenience to businesses and their employees.
Fensa director of membership Chris Beedel said: “The Fensa Training Academy is a big moment for us, our Approved Installers and the industry. To be able to provide accredited training courses across a variety of roles and skill sets that will improve standards across the sector is fantastic for our businesses.
“Our members now have affordable access to training that minimises the impact on their daily business. It’s yet another exclusive, added value benefit to Fensa Approved Installers that helps them stand out from the competition.”
