The requirement for training employees has been expressed by organisations who have identified goals for establishing a consistent and uniform knowledge base and approach to properties reported to be suffering damp and condensation issues. With a recognised attention to detail and an informative transparent reporting style, it has become apparent for Cornerstone to offer bespoke training programs to organisations dealing with property defects or social housing stock issues on a consistent basis.
Typical training programs consist of a theory based presentation in line with pre-agreed expectations and site visits to encompass practical issues with the prescribed use of measuring equipment purchased by the client.
Subjects Available Include:
- Causes of Mould
- Identifying the differences between condensation & Structural damp
- Understanding atmospheric conditions
- Understanding moisture origins
- Determining and understanding equipment readings
