Tiling Trainers Go to the Wall

The economic downturn has claimed another victim of the construction training industry leaving numerous students out of pocket.Diamond Training Group, providers of tiling courses and plastering courses, went into liquidation on Friday meaning many students are unable to complete qualifications despite already having handed over their money.One NVQ student revealed on a tiling forum that they arrived at the Diamond's training centre in Ford to find the facility locked with all the fixtures and fittings removed and no staff onsite.Unfortunately this is not uncommon in the construction training industry as many centres have been hit by the recession and been forced to go out of business.Able Skills advises anyone who is looking to train for a career in construction to visit a centre to view the facilities available before spending any money on qualification courses.Any credible centre should allow potential students access to view their training bays and the opportunity to chat to instructors and existing students.Able Skills also recommend that if you are looking to complete an accredited qualification that you confirm a training centre has qualified instructors, assessors and internal verifiers.We are proud to say Able Skills have been firmly established in the construction training industry since 2003 and continue to provide accredited plumbing courses, electrical courses and decorating courses to the highest level.Our commitment to producing competent tradesmen is such that we have recently opened a new training centre which offers the latest teaching in how to install and design environmental technologies through renewable energy courses.Able Skills welcome anyone looking to learn a trade or improve on their existing skillset to visit our Dartford premises and talk to our staff and trainees. We are confident that you will not be disappointed.
