COVID-19 UPDATE - 10 MAY 2021:
In line with the UK Goverment's roadmap out of lockdown, we are really pleased to advise the first of our timber training courses able to proceed again, operating within COVID-Secure guidelines. The Visual Strength Grading - Softwood course takes place in a barn, so is by default well ventilated and attendees will be able to be socially distanced.
