The success of the TRA’s online training programme is to be celebrated at the AGM in May, following news that candidate sign-ups more than quadrupled last year, and two more roof truss designers will be rewarded for being top scorers in the latest course.
Frank Kyne, from Wyckham Blackwell Ltd, and Gabor Vince, from Taylor Lane Timber Frame Ltd, were the highest scorers for the Introduction to Trussed Rafter Design online course offered in conjunction with Edinburgh Napier University.
Frank and Gabor will be awarded their training certificates at the AGM, and they also win an all-expenses paid trip to Sweden, courtesy of Vida Wood, including visits to the forest, mill and factory.
TRA’s online training has been a great success, says Nick Boulton, TRA secretary:
“I am very happy to report that the free training offered to members in 2017 resulted in 108 signups. This is almost five times the registrations in 2016. As a result, we want to continue this offer in 2018 and each TRA member site can reclaim up to £300 worth of free training.”
Members can claim a refund for two units of training so long as they are booked onto the course and have paid before the end of May and the course is completed within three months of receiving log in details. Part 1 Essentials and Part 2 Advanced are £175 each, or £300 for both units together.
To register for free training please contact Nick Boulton with the candidate name and business email address.
