Network VEKA competence seminars get off to a great start

The industry-leading trade organisation has kicked off a number of MTC (Minimum Technical Competence) seminars for its Assure members, with fantastic turnouts at Manchester City Football Club, Leeds Tenants Enterprise Centre and Dunston Hall at Norwich.

 

Over 60 delegates attended the Manchester seminar on 15th January, with a further 30 at Leeds on 22nd January and almost 20 at Dunston Hall on 29th January; all part of a series of seminars being held across the UK for its Assure members.

 

Austin Greene Network VEKA Technical & Compliance Manager explains: “Minimum Technical Competence training is a mandatory part of Assure membership, so to ensure that all our members are up to speed and fully compliant with current changes in legislation in the glazing industry, we aim to run a series of MTC best practice seminars.”

 

In total, Network VEKA will be running ten seminars across the UK, in locations such as Cardiff, Reading and Norwich.

 

Austin Greene adds: “As well as explaining what the changes in legislation are for members of competent persons schemes, we will also be covering how Network VEKA can assist members with implementing such changes. Other topics in the sessions include CE Marking, the Green Deal and Energy Ratings.

 

“At the end of each seminar, attendees are asked to complete an assessment to demonstrate their competencies, after which they are awarded ID cards to confirm their skills and knowledge.”

 

One attendee that found the seminars particularly useful was Sash Windows’ Craig Bedford, who said of the day: “Several of our staff attended the seminars in both Manchester and Leeds, and all agreed that these were friendly, informative and useful sessions.

 

“Austin covered a lot of subjects in a short space of time, but we were informed of everything we needed to know in regards to the new regulations and when they come in to force. He also reconfirmed other important regulations and Health and Safety matters, which give you confidence that you know you are doing things correctly. We would like to say a big thank you to the Network VEKA team.”

 

Ian McGrath of Grosvenor Windows commented: “The seminar covered such a wide range of topics, which Austin did well to explain in simple terms, so that everyone could understand and relate to.”

 

As Austin explains, Network VEKA’s Assure competent persons scheme expects to welcome around 300 attendees across all ten seminars: “These attendees will be among the first in the country to demonstrate compliance with the new MTCs.”

 

Network VEKA is authorised to operate a competent persons scheme, called Assure. The scheme enables installer members to join Assure to self-certify every window and door installation in accordance with Building Regulations.
