Howells Patent Glazing, in partnership with GQA accredited trainers, ASPIRE is proud to offer a selection of workshops and online tutorials designed to improve technical and practical understanding of its rooflights.
The company’s Rooflight Familiarisation Workshop, the first GQA approved rooflight course in the UK, is available alongside a new workshop for its popular low-pitch, non-intrusive aluminium rooflight, Ultraline. Both GQA approved workshops are complemented by a basic online version.
Open to all, the workshops provide valuable insight into the construction and installation of aluminium rooflights. With hands-on experience, trainees can learn about the components, assembly and installation of the company’s slim and Ultraline rooflights.
Upon completing each workshop and passing a written assessment, successful trainees will receive a Howells certificate of attendance and the opportunity to gain a GQA certificate and skills card. Places are chargeable and limited to four per training session.
The online tutorials meanwhile examine elements of the complete practical workshop and contain useful assembly and installation information - from flatpack to handover ready.
Participants must watch either one or three videos (workshop dependent) and complete a short online assessment via email link. Those who achieve 70% or above will receive a Howells certificate of completion.
Places are chargeable and the course must be completed within two months, from the date of purchase. The online training videos are presented in English. It is the responsibility of the person booking the course to ensure that the participant/s can fulfil the written elements.
Speaking of the online Rooflight Familiarisation Workshop, Mr S. Rushforth said: “The videos were really good and easy to follow.”, while a workshop trainee commented: “I was well looked after. Useful information…very well explained which made the practical part very easy to follow.”
