Mapei host FeRFA apprenticeship training at Halesowen headquarters
Mapei has recently hosted a FeRFA Apprenticeship training session which leads to an NVQ Level 2 Diploma. Apprentices were given an introduction to resin flooring at Mapei’s excellent training facilities in Halesowen, which covered two modules ‘Introduction to In Situ Resin Flooring’ and ‘Work Practice and Project Planning.’
Mapei provided an ideal setting having developed a wide selection of technologically advanced resin flooring systems which provide high standards of quality for each specific area of use including public, private, industrial and commercial applications. Mapei’s Mapefloor range consists of full product systems including waterproof membranes, primers, multi-layered coatings and quartz systems, with a wide range of colours and wax finishes . Mapefloor Systems can be tailored to meet specific requirements such as chemical resistance, traffic use, hygiene, anti-dust and slip resistance.
Terry Foxley, apprenticeship tutor commented: “The apprenticeship scheme is the most cost effective way for employers to train future resin flooring operatives to a very high standard. The assistance we get from member companies in hosting these sessions is invaluable and the facilities provided by Mapei have been excellent and make it a great learning experience for our apprentices.”
Mapei hope to continue its partnership with FeRFA, working alongside the proactive professional body to promote resin flooring and its advantages now and to future generations.
FeRFA offers two apprenticeship scheme, both of which run for two years and lead to an NVQ level 2 Diploma. Both scheme are supported by ConstructionSkills and are fully grant-funded. The schemes involve classroom and practical sessions in addition to employer-supported on-site experience such as Mapei offered.
