The Training Group holds a number of sector-specific courses for SLPTG members throughout the year, including Anchors for Steeplejacks and Working at Height for Lightning Conductor Engineers, which are a CSCS card requirement.

Courses are organised throughout the year at a low-cost fee or free of charge for SLPTG members.  Due to the way that SLPTG is funded through CITB, it cannot permit non-members to book places on the training courses.

Find courses which may be of interest to your company, as well as member events and meetings, and apprenticeship start dates.
