GGF recently held a new quality mark training programme for installers and it proved a great success!
Twelve trainees attended the two-day course which was held by Andy Clegg, a veteran of the glazing industry. The training allowed attendees to focus on honing their skills and delivering quality installations with exemplary customer service.
Members who send installers and surveyors on the course can progress to achieve the GGF Quality Installer Award and GGF Quality Surveyor Award. This also involves an on-site inspection and submission of a portfolio of two jobs.
A trainee who is involved in the sales side of the business commented: “I hadn’t realised the number of areas the installer is expected to be competent in. I now have a greater understanding of what these guys do when I send them out on a job. I need to continue to improve my knowledge.”
Richard Hearn GGF Head of Membership and Training said, “We had a great group of trainees to launch our new training courses. They were so engaged and keen to learn more creating a really positive vibe in the room. Andy is a superb trainer who can be both light hearted and serious when appropriate and fantastic at keeping everybody sharp and involved.”
Trainer, Andy Clegg commented, “I am delighted to have been asked to deliver the new training courses for the GGF. I have a passion for bringing the classroom alive through the on-site equipment I use as well as through models, demo material, ladders and health and safety tools and props. This first group of trainees responded brilliantly to my approach and were a pleasure to teach.”
The GGF will be launching its first training courses for surveyors on 25th October. You can find more information about the GGF training by visiting the website.
