Construction Training College

The ProRend Training College opened in January 2009 to offer rendering training courses at an away-from-site environment. Learn about modern systems and products on one of our rendering training courses that offer a combination of classroom theory and practical application on our practice walls. Become one of our Trained Applicators and we can recommend you for projects in your area - join our Applicator Network here.

**FREE 'Introduction to thin coat' afternoons, as soon as we are able- more info here**

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

See below for our range of day render and system courses, contact us to book. If you are an architect looking for CPDs, see our range of seminars here.
