GRP Fibreglass Roofing




1 day




The Builder Training Centre (The BTC) offers a high quality structured Fibreglass / GRP Flat Roofing Course, which can be attended over just 1 day.

Our instructors are qualified, highly experienced, knowledgeable and enthusiastic Tradespersons, so students can take advantage of all the tips of the trade, personal experiences and advice they offer.

This short course is intensive, but the atmosphere is relaxed and enjoyable which creates a good learning environment. If you have a particular project in mind, or some building plans you wish to gain advice on, our instructors will be more than happy to discuss these with you.

Cure-It is formed in situ to create a waterproof membrane that covers a whole roof without any seams, joints or welds. Our training course is designed to deliver practical training along with product information and the possibilities for a solution to almost any roofing problem. You will learn about health and safety, storage, and handling procedures for the Fibreglass / Glass Reinforced Plastic roofing materials. Material estimation, costing and other commercial considerations will also be covered.

By the end of this course we believe that you will be more than satisfied with the skills learnt and have a good understanding of the techniques required to enable you to lay a Fibreglass / Glass Reinforced Plastic roof.
