Training Courses

In order to get the most out of Safeguard products, specialist knowledge is required. This applies to both the application of the products and the diagnosis of the problems affecting a building - e.g. whether dampness is caused by rising damp, condensation, or penetrating damp.

It is for this reason that Safeguard has put together a comprehensive range of training courses run by some of the most qualified names in the industry.

Most courses are run at our head office in Horsham, West Sussex, with convenient road and rail links from London and the South Coast. For those coming from further afield, we are close to Gatwick airport which is served by flights from most major UK and European airports. Some of our practical courses are also run in Huddersfield at the Kirklees Construction Skills Academy.

In addition to our training courses, we are able to offer RIBA-approved CPD seminars to specifiers on the subjects of basement waterproofing, dampness in buildings, and green roofs.
