Description

Short Course Training in Painting & Decorating, Health and Safety (Level 1) and CSCS card

Decorators are required on all building sites and the need for an eye for detail is needed more so now than ever. There are many types of paints for many different surfaces and we will give you an insight to all of them.

To prepare you for work we are also offering complete 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 Ixion is offering fully funded 10 day courses running over a period of two weeks (full-time) at a centre near you.

The course will result in EDEXCEL accredited training in the following units:
