Apprentices train at Resdev’s brand new centre

Resdev hosted a three day training module for the 14th group of FeRFA In Situ Resin Flooring apprentices at its newly opened Resin Technology Centre in Elland.

The aim of the three days is to give the apprentices plenty of practical hands-on experience and the group thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to apply quartz materials and gain practice on their trowel work to take those skills into the workplace. On the final day, FeRFA trainer, Terry Foxley gave the learners a review of the course as a whole and guidance on the next steps in the apprentices’ progress towards achieving their NVQ level 2 Diplomas. The group will take the final module on Flowable screeds in April.

Resdev provided all the materials for the sessions and the apprentice worked in pairs to perfect their techniques in screeding and coving on purpose built wooden frames. The assistance FeRFA receives from its members in supporting these schemes as well as the CITB, who provide grant funding, helps to provide very cost effective training for FeRFA contractors. The candidates in this group are:

Andrew Siddons (Central Flooring), Thomas Singleton (John Lord), Warren Woodward & Lee Youds (Mike Thelwell Flooring Ltd), Ben Gladman & Tom Hogg-Beck (Polydeck Resins) and Aeron Lumley (Protective Coating Systems UK Ltd, Lloyd Davies (Page Industrial Flooring) and Stephen Cox.
