Damp and mould in buildings training course overview
Condensation is a common cause of damp, which damages properties, harms the health of residents and leaves housing associations with a big hole in repairs budgets. It damages the structure and safety of walls, rots wood and furniture (allowing for infestations of mites) and loosens wallpaper, plaster and paintwork. To safeguard against these frequent and widely spread conditions, specialist knowledge and skills are required.
Our course builds on what was taught in the first training programme, helping candidates gain a deeper understanding of condensation and damp.
What the course covers
Who should attend
Our advanced course is ideally suited for anyone who wants a more in depth knowledge of condensation, its causes and remedies. It benefits staff in local authority housing departments and housing associations, maintenance officers, inspectors, administrative staff, housing officers, customer service staff and people who order repairs. Our advanced condensation, damp and decay training course is also beneficial for tenant representatives and those embarking on a career in the building preservation industry.
Upkeep’s courses involve so much more than straightforward classroom teaching.
Our interactive training programmes use real items on display at our London headquarters – an extensive collection of models and practical examples that aid learning. Time and again, candidates say use of the display helps aid their understanding of what makes a building work and how its systems operate.
If you can’t make it to our offices, we can come to you with a bespoke training package tailored to meet your needs and those of your organisation.
