WHAT DO SOME OF OUR STUDENTS THINK?

Bear Melvey, Builder from Newcastle

Bear decided to take up the training and assessment workshop to further develop his knowledge in waterproofing as it is an essential part of the building process. He travelled from Newcastle to Baulkham Hills to achieve his Certificate III in Construction Waterproofing.

“The course has provided me with excellent exposure to alternate methodologies and products. It also covers the common mistakes that are made within the industry. The range of techniques and products that were covered in both a theoretical and practical environment always ensured participants were actively engaged. The course went beyond my expectations due to the extent covered and the level of knowledge and experience of the trainers”.

 Bear also describes that the trainer provides actual industry examples of significant waterproofing failures and demonstrates best practice skills to correct waterproofing issues. Bear would recommend Master Builders Training to his friends by letting them know “the course is worth doing as you will be surprised at how little you knew about waterproofing prior to completing the course”.

 

Csaba Kiss, Waterproofer from Maroubra

Csaba from Maroubra has been working in the waterproofing industry for 7 years and decided to advance his career by achieving his Certificate III qualification in Construction Waterproofing. 

“The course has enabled me to get a better idea of the technical side of the trade and through the Master Builders teaching I have learnt a lot about the NCC (National Construction Code). My favourite part of the course was learning about external waterproofing techniques of balcony areas and cavity flashings. The trainer was great at explaining and demonstrating the techniques and methods of internal waterproofing which I don't get to see every day as I specialise in external sheet membrane”.

Csaba would recommend Master Builders Training with some timely advice in helping other make the decision to take up a course “Take the time to invest in the training to broaden your knowledge of the methods, products and techniques to better yourself”.
