PPE Equipment Required
As the practical lessons are taking place on an active building site and due to the nature of the courses which include working with sharp tools and heavy materials at times, no training shoes will be permitted. Steel toe capped/ safety boots are advised for footwear and legs should be covered at all times while practical working is taking place.
