How You’ll Learn

You are involved at every stage, getting completely involved in every aspect of every course. A great way to learn more than just the basics of each trade and to be able to leave with the confidence to undertake aspects of these subjects yourself. Following a period of training, you will undertake assessments from both a theory and practical point of view to validate your understanding in the various trade subjects that you choose.
Successful completion of any 3 from these 5 subjects will provide you with the AIM Qualifications Level 3 Certificate in Building, Installation and Property Maintenance Skills so from a marketing point of view, an excellent opportunity to stand out from the crowd. Equally, employment prospects, if you can cover a few trades, are also much improved as demand increases with maintenance companies, local authorities, housing associations and much more. Equally, if you have your own project in mind then this qualification reduces the need for you to employ (some) other tradesmen.
