Education and training is key to assisting our industry in addressing the challenging issues with combustible façades. Our team at Fairview have worked with Master Builders consulting on the development of the new SafeClad training programs to create the industry’s first accreditation service for Aluminium Panel installers.
The new program highlights the risks involved with cladding of medium to high rise residential and commercial buildings, and delivers on the latest aluminium panel safe cladding practices from the installer, manufacturer and peak body perspectives. Upon successful completion of the program, installers will receive certification from Master Builders with a SafeClad accreditation and will also benefit from new skills and knowledge about our fit-for-purpose cladding products.
Master Builders’ SafeClad programs currently include two structured programs:
- Awareness Session: the 3 hour session, taking place on Monday 23rd of July 2018, is for commercial builders, developers, project managers, architects and engineers who are engaged in construction projects where aluminium-based cladding is, or may be, installed. Formal CPD Points = 3
- Assessment Session: this 1 day program is open to installers or subcontractors who are currently working with aluminium cladding panels and will take place in a simulated environment observed by an MBA Assessor. There will also be written knowledge questions. This program is currently available on the 13th, 20th and 27th August. Formal CPD Points = 7
