"Construction Skills have delivered exceptional training and support ... because of this we work very closely together " B&Q Training Manager
A number of our courses now include training within domestic properties, details can be found within the course listings for our plastering courses and electrical courses. We regularly review our courses to ensure that they meet the needs of our those that attend our course and that they meet what is needed within the industry. This is why we no offer training within a dometic property for plastering and electrical installations. We believe that this training is invaluable when using the skills after you have left the centre. If you wish to become a plasterer or a domestic electrical installer it is ideal that your training involves completing work in a real house which is off site.
Whatever your reasons for wishing to learn a trade you will find Construction Skills College the ideal professional, friendly, supportive environment you need to help you achieve your aims. Full support is available after you have completed your course, your tutor is only a phone call away and will help you with any questions you have relating to what was covered on your course.
We welcome you to visit our training centre at anytime to view the facilities, speak with a tutor and speak with current learners and view the work they have completed. If possible it is more beneficial if you attend towards the end of a course as you will be able to see the standard of work that has been acheived and I am sure that if someone was not happy with the training they had received they would tell you (when you visit you are free to talk with current learners). So whether you wish to become a plasterer, domestic installer, qualified electrian, tiler, plumbing, gas engineer, green deal advisor, domestic energy assessor, carpenter, kitchen fitting, bricklayer, painter and decorator then we have the courses for you.
If you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to contact the centre on 01782 837007 or contact via email at email@example.com
