For many years Geveko Markings has been proud to be able to provide a training programme that is suitable for those new to resin bound systems and experienced contractors alike.
Our Technical, Management and Marketing Departments have created what we believe to be the industry’s best training academy, offering comprehensive, hands-on classroom and installation tuition. Following established guidelines as set out by FerFA, we offer up-to-date skilled guidance in our new, dedicated and socially-distanced training facility.
Our programme provides a step-by-step, in-depth insight into the processes involved in achieving a successful resin bound installation. We cover all aspects, from initial site assessment, through ground build-up and installation, to aftercare and long-term maintenance, as well as highlighting a few pitfalls where care should be taken to avoid things going wrong before, during and after installation, and advise on how they can be avoided or remedied.
The training consists of two parts:
- a classroom introduction and presentation to resin binders and aggregates
- practical training where participants can get hands-on with the material and the equipment used for a successful application
We give the contractor a warm welcome, introducing them to the Resin Surfacing team, followed by an overview of the company and our brands, as well as the different resin systems they will be working with in the future.
The practical training offers valuable close up learning in the application of resin bound, and we encourage all participants to get involved and take part in the laying of materials.
What the Academy offers
- An overview of resin systems
- In-depth knowledge of how to prepare a surface ready for installation
- Step-by-step installation experience following our proven methods
- Familiarity with specialist equipment such as PowerFloats and Sleds
- Design features and ideas
- Maintenance and remedial repairs
- On-hand technical advice and support on your first installation
- Guidance on PPE and health and safety on-site
There's a Q&A session throughout the day, which is rounded off with the presentation of certificates for attendees, a sample case and literature to take away, including application guides and notes covering all aspects of what has been covered.
However, this is just the beginning of a journey we undertake together. We are on hand to deliver ongoing advice and guidance, as well as attending site to lend support to customers with their early installations, to enable them to grow in confidence and become the industry’s future experts.
