New training academy

Senior Architectural Systems recently created a dedicated Training Academy at its South Yorkshire head office, where the company offers a comprehensive training programme in the use of its SF52 aluminium curtain walling system.

Senior’s training combines both theoretical and practical elements and is supported by GQA Qualifications.

With many main contractors increasingly looking for evidence of competency within the supply chain, product training is an effective way for fabricators to strengthen their position in today’s competitive market and to take advantage of the many supplier agreements that manufactures such as Senior have in place, the company said.

Senior’s training is also available to main contractors to help them improve their own knowledge of the fabrication process and raise awareness of best practice procedures on site.

Senior’s business development manager Tony Powell said: “The product training that we can provide has been specifically developed for busy fabricators and even those that have worked with our systems for a number of years have still benefited from updating their knowledge.

“Our sessions cover everything from practical tasks and advice on tooling, to health and safety and current competency. As our training is supported by GQA, our customers can be sure that the training they are receiving is relevant, effective and of a high quality, and the feedback we have received so far has been really positive.”
