THE YORKSHIRE Independent Roof Training Group is working with the National Federation of Roofing Contractors Yorkshire and North East Counties Region to offer fully funded
on-line courses to support essential learning. Funding is provided equally by both parties to support member companies.
Courses are chosen to support individuals who have been furloughed, or those who do not wish to take further time away from work to train. These courses include the six key learning outputs required by the RoofCERT Programme.
“The NFRC Regional Committee is delighted to be able to support this initiative managed by YIRTG to help companies continue to train through these difficult times.”
NFRC Y&NE Counties Regional Manager Andrew Turnbull
“During these difficult and testing times Yorkshire Independent Roof Training Group is looking to diversify its role as a training group by providing online training for all members to ensure that skills and knowledge are continually developed even with the current challenges of limited classroom training.
“The courses available will also assist member companies and their employees to continue with the RoofCERT Programme ensuring safety and professionalism in the industry, something we are really keen to support. We aim to keep Yorkshire standing out as leaders in learning and development and we look forward to working with you soon.”
Alex Kettle-Metcalfe, Chairman of YIRTG, Everlast Waterproofing
In the first 2 weeks of this offer going live, 6 companies have commissioned courses, recruiting 45 learners who will undertake 76 courses and 28 have already completed.
