Fully accredited training courses that give you just what you want.
Having spent the last two years working with students from all sections of the timber trade and refining what's needed, we can now offer a full range of qualifications in the wood industry and wood technology. Our courses are accredited by Proskills Global; and we can help with your apprenticeship requirements and training needs analysis.
We can offer training whatever size of business you are, anywhere in the country; either at your premises; at the training rooms at our offices just off the A1; or, by prior arrangement, at venues in London, Lincolnshire and Swindon, on selected dates.
Currently available training course dates can be found here.
IOM3 LEVEL 2 AWARD IN TIMBER & PANEL PRODUCTS AND THEIR USES (QCF)
Existing timber industry standard entry-level award, with tutorials, private study and final exam.
LEVEL 4 CERTIFICATE IN WOOD SCIENCE & TIMBER TECHNOLOGY
This course provides some solid, in-depth knowledge on Wood as a Material and how it behaves; as well as a detailed understanding of how and why wood is processed and graded; and how the manufacture of wood-based panels influences their properties and uses.
The Course is intended for those in the Wood Industries who need to have a much better grasp of Wood Science, to enable them to solve problems related to specification and use; or to understand how to minimise the problems and wastage that often occur when timber and woodbased products are used inappropriately.
It is ideal for Management Trainees, Middle and Senior Managers and anyone with a more senior role in ordering, specifying or designing in timber. Successful candidates will be eligible for Membership of the IOM3 at “Technician” level (TIMMM).
LEVEL 6 DIPLOMA IN WOOD TECHNOLOGY
This course will build on the Level 4 Certificate: providing much more in-depth Wood Science and Timber Technology for those who want to progress their studies even further. It includes greater knowledge of wood-related topics e.g. Engineered Timber, as well as a deeper understanding of how wood's structure and properties affect things like Preservatives, Surface Coatings and Design parameters.
Successful candidates will be eligible for Membership of the IOM3 at “Professional Member” level (MIMMM).
