With more than 25 years experience delivering visual strength grading courses, BM TRADA has built up significant expertise. All of its consultants are engaged in European Standards committees, meaning that training courses are as up-to-date as possible, delivered with an expert knowledge of current thinking.
Delegates who pass the BM TRADA timber grading course will be able to grade and assess their own stock; check and confirm that the graded timber they have purchased meets the contract; re-grade machined timber; and provide their clients with better knowledge and understanding.
The next softwood training course takes place 29th June to 3rd July. The five-day course combines theoretical training with practical demonstration, and culminates in a formal VSG exam.
BM TRADA also runs a series of refresher courses which cover the content of days one to three in the standard softwood course while then allowing attendees to take the formal exam. The next of these is 2-3 July.
In addition, BM TRADA runs a hardwood VSG training course, delivered twice during the year. These courses cover the meanings of the strength classes, an explanation of strength grading, and the marking systems for strength graded timber.
Delegates will also learn about the responsibilities of the grader. Graders will gain practical experience grading lengths of hardwood to TH1 and TH2 grades under the close supervision of BM TRADA’s experienced trainers. The three-day events finish with a formal VSG exam.
Dates for 2015 are:
Phil O’Leary, BM TRADA Section Leader, Timber Technology Investigations, runs the courses: People who take the BM TRADA grading courses will improve their grading skills and knowledge. Being able to interpret the rules correctly means that you reduce the risk of sending out stock that is non-compliant.
