FeRFA Apprentices Do Practical Session On Resin Coatings

THE 11th group of FeRFA in situ resin flooring apprentices have taken their latest module, this time in resin coatings.
Training facilities were provided by FeRFA manufacturer member, Sika, at its Welwyn Garden City site.

The company also supplied all the necessary materials for the two day practical sessions, where the candidates gained valuable guidance and hands-on experience.
The apprentices now have to complete their modules on self smoothing, screeds and coving and finally, flowable screeds. They will then continue to work with their employers, supervised on-site, to reach the necessary proficiency to be assessed for their NVQ level 2 diplomas.
The next FeRFA in-situ resin apprenticeship course is just underway with a full complement. However, further courses are available in surface preparation and the new screeding course, both of which lead to an NVQ Level 2 diploma within two years.
The enrolment form and details of future courses can be downloaded from the FeRFA website at

Not only does the FeRFA apprenticeship provide properly structured training, it is also fully grant funded through ConstructionSkills and offers the most cost-effective way of training new people to the industry.
The FeRFA website has comprehensive information on training and grants, including the apprenticeship schemes for in situ resin flooring and surface preparation, upskilling courses and NVQs. .
