Friday 28th September saw Keylite undertake a training and CPD session with Wales National Roofing Training Group in Caerphilly. With in-depth training on roof window installation and a CPD information seminar on the how to maximise window performance and thermal benefits, Keylite demonstrated its determination to educate a new generation of roofers and arm them with not only product knowledge, but an awareness of the issues affecting the industry and the end user alike.
Set up in 2009 as a not-for-profit organisation, WNRTG has been built up by Lesley Hughes to now organise training for its 70+ roofing contractor members. Membership is a mere £100 per year and training is mostly grant funded via CITB. WNRTG offers NVQ level 2 training in all disciplines and has more recently been awarded a tender for NVQ 3 Heritage roofing throughout the UK.
Speaking of the training session, Lesley Hughes commented ‘it was great to introduce the apprentices from Avonside Roofing, Rooftop Tiling, TPS Roofing and Ellis and Co. to Keylite products and give them a better understanding on the product and how it is fitted.’ Feedback from the trainees themselves was also very strong, and they gained an added confidence in suggesting the use of Keylite products in the future.
