Timber training experts TFT Woodexperts has received accreditation from Proskills Global Ltd for its development of a Level 6 (Equivalent) Diploma in Wood Technology.
The course builds on TFT Woodexperts’ Level 4 (equivalent) Certificate, deepening knowledge of the structure and properties of wood, their influence on timber construction design and engineering, and effects on preservative and coating choices.
“The continuing rise of timber’s use in construction, driven by both climate change carbon reductions and offsite housing manufacture, has brought about significant demand for technical timber expertise ,” Woodexperts’ director Jim Couson says.
“This Level 6 Wood Technology Diploma course enables graduates from our popular Level 4 courses to continue their professional development. Projects undertaken at Level 6 can be of real benefit to both employers’ and candidates’ business futures,” he concludes. Successful candidates receiving the Level 6 qualification will be eligible for membership of the Institute of Materials, Metals and Mining (IOM3) at ‘Associate’ level (AIMMM).
