5-yearly Refresher Course

This one day course is open to anyone and non-members are welcome. However, it is aimed at experienced sweeps. Experienced sweeps seeking to join the Guild and existing members updating their knowledge will find this course outstanding.

It is busy and packed with updated information on regulations, best practice and industry developments. You have the opportunity to expand your scope of business through a better understanding of industry developments and trends. Being aware of new regulations and best practice etc. keeps you and your customers safer. You also get to spend a day with a group of the most professional sweeps in the country! Priceless

Guild members voted to take a lead within the sweeping industry and undertake mandatory refresher training every five years to uphold and improve quality standards.

Rather than undertake the one day refresher course, members can elect to attend three or four days on the main Guild Training Programme instead. This is a special service offered to members only with a limit of 2 places per course. An absolute bargain at £60 per day inc. lunch. Contact Us for further details.

This is all underpinned by practical, theory and equipment assessments.
