BMI UK & Ireland has relaunched its National Training Centre as the BMI Academy.
The UK’s first ever dedicated roof training centre, the BMI Academy – now a multi-site operation, with its hub in South Cerney, Gloucestershire – offers best-in-class training and comprises possibly the most comprehensive learning resource in the country.
Not content with just being the UK’s first dedicated roof training centre, the BMI Academy looks forward to many more firsts as it aligns with the other training academies across BMI Group’s global operations.
As a BMI Academy, the National Training Centre looks forward to delivering improved standards of training through the strength of the company’s global training service and the introduction of new technology and techniques – such as the recently developed e-learning and live stream workshops.
Supporting stakeholders across the construction industry, the BMI Academy delivers training to architects, contractors, housebuilders, merchants and public authorities for both pitched and flat roofing. The aim is to provide a high level of collaboration with specification and site professionals – improving standards, understanding, and the use of new technologies and techniques.
With an industry-leading mix of theory and practical courses, from RIBA-approved CPDs to installation and estimating courses, the BMI Academy offers the chance to develop and improve either knowledge or skills to those in the roofing sector at all levels.
For medium to large size firms, bespoke and mobile training services are available on demand meaning that BMI is able to tailor courses to suit the company’s specific needs and run them either at their sites in Gloucester and Manchester, or at the company’s own location.
As the drive to recruit more young people and professionalise the roofing sector continues, the BMI Academy also works in education to support those studying towards a qualified status.
