If you are an apprentice or trainee working in mainstream construction in Wales you can apply for a three day course to train in the essential skills for working on existing buildings. It comprises one day in the class room and two days on site.  This initiative aims to bring the skills associated with the repair, maintenance, refurbishment/ retrofit and conservation of traditional buildings into the mainstream of construction education and training across Wales and to establish a core set of sustainability skills for the sector.  The training has been developed by the NPTC Group and Edwards Hart for CITB Cymru.
