Choosing the correct products is key to the success or failure of a job, which is why it’s crucial for tradesman to have up-to-date knowledge on the latest products and installation techniques.
With this in mind, Dunlop, the specialist manufacturer of tile adhesives, grouts, finishing and decorating products, has launched a host of new training courses at its newly opened, purpose-built Innovation and Technology Centre in Stoke-on-Trent.
One to five-day practical courses are available to tradesman on tiling techniques and decorating preparation, led by Dave Rowley, Dunlop Training Manager, and members of the company’s technical team.
“Training is a key priority at Dunlop, and we believe it is important to give tradesman – whether they are new to the trade, at college, or have many years’ experience – the opportunity to learn about the latest technologies and installation practices to enhance their skills,” commented Dave.
“All training takes place at our state-of-the-art Innovation and Technology Centre with its practical training bays, demonstration auditorium and conference rooms providing the perfect training facility for all our courses.”
Training techniques include presentations, workshops, demonstrations and hands-on practical training within individual working bays designed to reflect real life installations with mock-up windows, pipework and toilets for example.
Throughout the course, delegates will use and mix tile adhesives, grouts, fillers and smoothers onto realistic backgrounds.
Day 1 – Introduction to Tiling
Day 2 – Floor and Wall Preparation prior to Tiling
Day 3 – Wall Tiling
Day 4 – Floor Tiling
Day 5 – Repairing Walls, Ceilings and Woodwork prior to Decorating with Dunlop Pro Décor
Dunlop operates a flexible approach to training, giving tradesman the option to book individual days or group days together as they please throughout the year.
On completion of the course, delegates will receive a certificate of attendance, literature, merchandise and product worth more than the cost of the course.
