Construction Training College

The ProRend Training College launched in January 2009 offers a truly away-from-site environment to learn about modern rendering systems. The market leading render training centre offers a combination of classroom theory and practical application of render products.

A wide range of courses are available (see below) to suit not only the needs of the practical applicator but also the needs of the sub-contractor, architect and quantity surveyor.
