AluK has just released its 2020 Academy training schedule
With more than 20 different GQA accredited AluK courses and workshops available to book now via the website at www.alukacademy.co.uk.
The options include product awareness courses and LogiKal workshops on AluK’s complete range of aluminium window, door and curtain walling products, theory and fabrication workshops, hands on installation training, and introduction to Building Regs sessions.
All of the courses are free and take place at AluK’s impressive training Academy at its Chepstow HQ. They all combine a mix of theory and practical experience and the feedback from participants is always very positive.
Riverside Bi-Folds, for example, gave a ringing endorsement of their Academy experience in 2019. The company sent its factory teams on a two day theory and fabrication course and its office staff on a product awareness and LogiKal processing workshop.
Company Director Aaron Moroney said it was definitely time well spent: “The courses gave our staff a more in-depth understanding of both processing and fabrication, which we know will really benefit our trade customers. They were very professionally run with just the right balance of classroom theory and hands on practicals and, as always at AluK, we were made to feel very welcome.
“Our fabrication teams definitely gained from seeing the AluK team demonstrate the perfect way to fabricate our products and, for those in the office, the skills they learnt in processing have prompted us to add more AluK products to our range.”

A brand new training initiative is also being planned for 2020, as the AluK Academy is joining forces with the CAB and the GQA to provide a simple new route for installers to achieve their Curtain Walling Installer CSCS card.
Curtain wall installers who attend a one day CAB approved curtain walling course at the AluK Academy alongside AluK’s system specific AAA16 SL50 curtain wall theory and installation workshop will now be able to apply for their own CSCS card - as long as they follow up with an appropriate health and safety course and NVQ qualification.
