The Guild of Master Chimney Sweeps
Powering Chimney Sweeping into the 21st Century

Training Courses

Guild Training courses are open to anyone, non-members are welcome. They are run from leading national centres and are delivered by qualified trainers. We run different courses for trainees and experienced sweeps alike. Please select a course from the list below for more details. Generous discount for Guild members.

The Guild Training Programme for new sweeps starts with an intensive four day course. It is a great mix of theory and practical with plenty of time for questions and discussion. A maximum trainee to trainer ratio of 4 to 1 means you get the attention you need. There is lots of different equipment to see and use on the course and our feedback is consistently excellent.
