CREATING AN INSPIRING TRAINING ENVIRONMENT

When we first began discussing the training centres, our aims were very clear: To change the way training was delivered in roofing.
We have thrown out the old norms, the repetitive rigs, the simplified exercises and our design process was clear. We wanted challenging and comprehensive roof setups, real life situations in a workshop environment, and above all, for the student experience to be exciting and inspiring.

TEACHING WITH EXCELLENCE

We have worked hard to bring the very best tutors, craftspeople and assessors in the country to deliver training and accreditation, passing down invaluable knowledge and real world experience to our students.
All of our tutors have many decades of experience in the roofing industry, with incredible standards of roofing excellence in their own right.
Having exceptional trainers and tutors is paramount to the ethos of our centres and really is the backbone of our educational goals.

Both centres also carry the ‘Richard Murdoch Training Centre for Excellence’ accolade among many other industry recognised accreditations.

Courses

The NCTS curriculum is designed to offer skills and development to everyone within the construction industry. From beginner to experienced tradespeople, we can offer a range of industry recognised qualifications designed to help you make the next move in your career, improve in a niche area or simply gain more confidence. We are dedicated to developing a curriculum which will benefit the construction industry and our centres are open to all construction sector employers and those looking to develop or start a career in the industry.

The hard metals course is an in-depth course, focussing on the most frequently used hard metal roofing details which a student may come across when installing hard metals in a restoration and new build capacity on site.

This course is supported by the Pay as you Train scheme- Contact us at training@masterroofers.co.uk for more course information.

The pay as your train scheme

The pay as you train scheme is an initiative to make training and learning affordable for all.

How does it work?

The pay as you train scheme can work in several ways.

1. You can pay for your training in installments (usually 4 installments for a 5 day training course)

2. For bigger courses like the pathway courses or courses which run into 10 or 15 days, you can separate the training schedule up into 5 day (1 week) blocks and pay for them in a more manageable way.

We can advise you on available course dates which give you time to pay before you come to the centres. All courses need to paid up in full, at least 3 weeks before your course is due to start.
