What people are saying about our courses
This was exactly what you want from a training course. From the moment we arrived at AluK, we couldn’t have felt more welcome. Nothing was too much effort for anyone and the whole day was a success. The theory part in the morning from Darren Burford was ideal with plenty of interaction and discussion and really clear explanations. Then, the fabrication session in the workshop during the afternoon worked really too with the three of us from Ridlands teaming up with the two guys from AluK to fabricate part of a window and really pick up on some valuable tips. We came away with a huge amount of really useful information
I found these courses to be very helpful, even though I already have fairly extensive knowledge of both systems. What was particularly enlightening was the advice on reading manuals and understanding the product specifications and limitations.
This was a day well spent. Informative, enlightening and above all really engaging. As an expanding business, we are keen to ensure our staff are trained in the more specialist products such as curtain walling, and to get things right from the outset clearly means listening to the experts. We took some of our trade installers along to the course as well and they found it equally valuable. We would definitely recommend
