workshop outline*GQA ACCREDITED

The aim of this 1-day workshop has been designed to provide basic underpinning knowledge together with practical training for installers of the 58BW Window & 58BD Door Systems and those who are involved in the installation process e.g. window/door installers, site supervisors, site operatives. The course is suitable for experienced installers who have not previously fitted AluK’s 58BW Window & 58BD Door Systems, as well as those with limited experience. Knowledge of the aluminium window, door and curtain walling industry would particularly be beneficial but not essential.

The workshop will cover both the theoretical aspects of the 58BW Window & 58BD Door Systems as well as the Installation principles of the 58BW Window & 58BD Door Systems in our dedicated training workshop. You will be using the AluK Technical Manual throughout the workshop to guide you through the different profiles, components, tooling and processes required to understand and install the 58BW Window & 58BD Door Systems.

* This is a GQA Qualifications Ltd Accredited Course and there is a short end of course assessment to take to gain the GQA Certificate.
