Dry Lining inc. Health & Safety + CSCS (10 Days)

A course pass will secure you EDEXCEL accredited units of training: Level 1 & obtain a CSCS card

Short Course Training in Interior Systems (Dry Lining), Health and Safety (Level 1) and CSCS card

Dry lining is the fastest growing trade in the construction industry and is lacking skilled workers across the whole of London and the South East. It’s a trade that has various sectors which are all interlinked. 

What is dry lining: Dry lining is technically the covering of a background surface with a plaster substitute; Masonry, block work and generally brickwork are unacceptable as a finish not only for aesthetic reasons but also because they generally are not as true as a plastered finish. Dry lining is the fitting of plasterboard or a board material similar to plasterboard to any surface instead of a hard plaster 

To prepare you for work we are also offering complete Health and Safety in the Workplace and CSCS training. 

CSCS is the leading skills certification scheme within the UK construction industry. CSCS cards provide proof that individuals working on construction sites have the required training and qualifications for the type of work they carry out. 

The Scheme keeps a database of people working in construction who have achieved, or are committed to achieving a recognised construction related qualification. Most principal contractors and major house builders require construction workers on their sites to hold a valid CSCS card.
