This highly practical approach is designed to give them direct experience of using all the products required for particular jobs, making it easier for them to put a complete package together for their customers.

Who would benefit?
Anyone with the requirement to ‘take off’ materials from standard drawings or wanting to refresh their knowledge in the Plumbing andHeating range.

Course content
  • The courses are ideally run for a particular merchant at their premises, which means they will focus on the product ranges stocked by that company.
  • The merchant can either book an individual workshop or combine several to provide a progressional learning programme with BTEC certification.
  • All the workshops follow typical customer jobs. The delegates worktogether in teams to compare and determine the main productsrequired by the customer, to identify the potential add-on sales, and to learn how to install the products themselves.

There are separate plumbing and heating workshops for:
  • Copper and plastic tube and fittings
  • Heating systems
  • Waste and soil pipe and fittings
  • Bathroom products and showers
  • Tiles and tiling accessories
  • Rainwater goods and drainage.

Each workshop covers:
  • The product range delegates are selling
  • How and where their customers use these products
  • Design and installation
  • Types, grades, finishes and sizes offered
  • Gaining add on sales

    The workshop finishes with a test so that delegates can assess their new knowledge, sales and service skills.
