Howells Patent Glazing is pleased to announce the launch of its Rooflight Familiarisation Workshop, the first GQA approved rooflight workshop in the UK.
Open to all, the six-hour, fully accredited workshop provides a valuable insight into the construction of aluminium rooflights and is designed to improve technical and practical understanding.
Trainees will learn about the components, assembly and installation of the company’s slimline rooflight, with hands-on experience.
The familiarisation workshop draws on the company’s 40+ years in the fenestration industry, with examples of do’s and don’ts and what to look out for. It is relevant to sales representatives and installers alike.
Successful completion will result in a Howells certificate of attendance and the opportunity to gain a GQA certificate and skills card. With Centre Approved Status, Howells will host regular courses at its base in Cradley Heath, Birmingham. Alternative locations are available on request. The workshop is provided by GQA accredited trainers, ASPIRE.
Places are chargeable and limited to six per training session, with one session per month. The charge can be claimed back against the purchase of a Howells hipped rooflight.
To formally mark the launch of the Rooflight Workshop, the company recently hosted an open day. Welcoming customers, contractors and installers alongside representatives from education providers and local authorities, the event was supported by Councillor Ann Shackleton of Cradley Heath and Old Hill Ward.
Howells is committed to making manufacturing and fenestration careers of choice while also addressing the skills gap, as such the workshop is affiliated with Building Our Skills. Howells Business Development Manager, Tracey Jackson is the first Champion Supporter of Building Our Skills.
