Apprentices’ latest training gets them well prepared

The 16th group of apprentices held their last training session of 2016 at The Preparation Group’s training facility in Lincoln.

The two-day session started with the essential techniques of proper floor preparation and continued, through a combination of classroom teaching and practical experience, with the various methods of surface preparation and the choice of equipment available.

Stephen Walker, who ran the two day sessions, gave the apprentices plenty of opportunity to try a range of machines.

This group has now completed the first ten modules of their two year apprenticeship and will continue their training with further combined classroom and practical sessions on Coatings, Self smoothing, Screeds & Covings and Flowable Screeds.

The apprentices in Resin 17 are: Steve Baker, Lee Cornish and Gary Ashby (Polydeck Resins) Jake Brown (Central Flooring Services), Simon Murphy (Ultrasyntec), James Murray (Surtech) and Charles Abel (Hart Site Services), Brian Quinn (Veitchi Industrial Flooring), Daniel Moreland and Mark Harrison from (Reprotec UK).
