Schlüter Training Success 2017

As 2017 draws to a close, attendance at our industry-leading training events for contractors and distributors is projected to be around 30% up on 2016.

2017 also represented the first full year of the Schlüter Approved Installer training programme, for which demand proved to be double that of what was anticipated. The high levels of interest were pleasing, serving to highlight the popularity of our products and approach to the industry.

“2017 has been great and we already have significant demand for training next year, which shows that we are hitting the mark,” says Andrew Curry, Training Manager for Schlüter-Systems Ltd, “We aim for as many people as possible to have a memorable Schlüter experience, from the moment they come in to the moment that they walk out the door”.

Training and education is an incredibly important part of the Schlüter ethos, and we deliver it in various different formats:
Open-invite days: Training days that all tilers and allied trades are welcome to attend
Distributor-led days: To which our distributors invite their customers
MECs: Mobile Education Centre—our staff will visit distributors and events across the country

With such an extensive range of products and solutions, these sessions are of vital importance “Turning up to a trade event with a table and some brochures would be doing our product a disservice,” continues Andrew. “Practical products call for practical demonstrations that speak properly to the people who are kindly lending us their ear”.

A well-run training event doesn’t happen by chance: “A major reason for our training success and the positive feedback we receive is down to our excellent team,” says Andrew. “They work tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure that everything works like clockwork and I couldn’t ask for better support in delivering these events”.

Looking forward to next year, the training team are planning to introduce an advanced wetroom training course that will be 95% practical in nature and include everything from substrate preparation specifically for level access floors, right through to finishing touches with profiles. It is anticipated that the course will be run once every two months once established.

Schlüter extends a heartfelt thanks to all who attended our training events this year; we hope you found them useful! To those who haven’t joined us yet, don’t worry—there’s plenty more to come from the Schlüter Training team and we look forward to meeting you soon.
