Training the trades

VU's School of Construction Industries continues to provide training programs directed at industry professionals.

The focus of the March training was the safe erection of timber roof trusses using the MiTek developed training program.  Participants learnt both theoretical and practical aspects of truss roof construction and were given the opportunity to test their knowledge of truss roof erection against industry standards.

"Our industry needs continuous development to maintain its strength." says Peter Jacobson, Head of the School of Construction Industries. "Our partners recognise VU's training programs as valuable opportunities to maintain and improve their trade skills"

It wasn't all hard work, attendees had the chance to catch up with each other and industry representatives over a BBQ and soft drinks at the conclusion of the training.
