Construction and Building Services

The construction industry is highly competitive, and the rapid introduction of new materials, new technologies and new regulations are all coming together to drive the demand for better-developed skills. This will apply, whether you are a self-employed tradesperson or a large construction business.

We offer a series of courses that will meet your individual business needs. These include initial training, refreshers and certification testing in aspects of:

  • Electrical
  • Plumbing
  • Gas working
  • Renewable construction
  • New energy technologies

All courses are held at our new purpose-built Construction Skills Academy at Team Valley. This is a state-of-the-art facility equipped with all the latest tools.

Our enthusiastic and dedicated staff all have appropriate qualifications and industry-relevant experience.
