An Extra Training Feather to our Cap

Pleased to say our invasive weed courses have a new ‘feather to add to their caps’. We are VERY PROUD to have been recognised, approved and now registered under the BASIS Professional Register.

What does this exactly mean? Well, along with some GREAT LEARNING, for those that pass you now have the extra weight of authority and certification through the BASIS scheme for attending certain courses. As an extra ‘Brucie Bonus’ all those that attend can now claim vital CPD points too!

Step into Autumn with some training

Residential Ventilation Masterclass

If you liked him at our ‘2019 Structural Waterproofing Conference’, you will love him on this course! Paul Harrington was one of our amazing speakers at our 2019 SW Conference in July. On this course Paul will be discussing how to design specify ventilation systems that meet the requirements of Part F of the building regulations and evaluate existing systems against the standard. The course will allow surveyors to take the guesswork out of specifying fans and ventilation units.

Basement Water Management

This one day workshop will give candidates will chance to see a working pump. developed for surveyors and technicians who are already involved in, or who wish to gain a better understanding of, the theory and practical application of pump stations and accessories relating to drainage of cavity membrane systems.
