Technical training has an important role to play for Mapei and we promote refresher courses and installation workshops all around the world to perfect the application techniques for our products. The courses are held by Mapei Technical Services and our expert technicians through practical demonstrations, audio-visual training and the distribution of technical and information packs. And to reach sites directly, Mapei also uses a special motor-home which is available for a number of countries, a kind of mobile training centre which allows us to form a wider network of training opportunities anywhere we wish. Just as important is on-line training using the latest digital technology, accessible via PCs, tablets and smartphones. Periodically, Mapei organises technical refresher conventions and seminars, both in form of lectures and webinars, in conjunction with various Chartered Bodies for designers, site managers and specialists from the construction sector.
Mapei is an accredited Advanced Training Body for the National Council of the Association of Architects Landscape Planners and Conservationists, authorised to carry out training work and award professional training credits. Over 6,700 events are carried out at the various Mapei training centres, our specification centres, throughout Italy and the rest of the world, including France, Norway, Germany, Singapore, United States, Poland and Hungary, just to mention a few. The events always involve expert speakers from the industry and focus on cutting-edge technical issues in the building and design industries.
