First Practical Modules for Screeding Apprentices

The FeRFA Screeding apprentices have had their first opportunity to mix and lay screeds as part of their two year NVQL2 training scheme.

The two day course, held at the excellent training facilities of The Preparation Group in Lincoln, included both classroom and practical training on traditional applied screeds. With screeding material kindly donated by Flowcrete, the apprentices set up a mixing station, test the material and laid the screed with reinforcement in various bays, at thicknesses of up to 80 mm. PPE for this session was provided by VI Distribution.

The apprentices will return to Lincoln in May for the next module which covers Calcium Sulfate screeds.

Learners in this group are: Jordan Burgess, Scott Barclay (TPS360), Michael Gibbs and Thomas Henderson (Trent Construction Services).
