The Foundation Energy Skills FES course was carried out in Cork in the Day and Evening time to accommodate as many building construction workers as possible.
Although the feedback from the participants was excellent it was a shame that the courses was not fully attended. These courses can accommodate 20 construction workers, unfortunately the numbers in both evening and day deliveries were significantly below these levels. The Cork FES courses were held at the Cork Institute of Technology, CIT, campus with the Trainer Sean O’Keeffe delivering the course. Sean completed the QualiBuild phase 1 of the Train the Trainer course and was chosen to carry out this training.
It should be noted that applications for Phase 2 of the FES course is now open and hopefully we can get more Cork and Waterford construction workers on this course. To apply click on HERE
The course includes classroom activities using videos, group discussions, poster work and demonstration work. After identifying why we need to acheive quality low energy building the participants then investigate what is needed and how can this be achieved by looking at the topics:
- thermal bridging,
- continuous insulation
- controlled ventilation.
This is an extensive course and fits all levels of expertise, whether you are classes as general operatives, craftspeople or site supervisors/foremen.
