GGF fire courses shortlisted in G15 Training category

The GLASS & GLAZING FEDERATION Fire Resistant Glazing Group’s Installer Training Course has been nominated  as a finalist in the G15 Awards in the category for “Training and Development Initiative of the Year”.

The group’s Managing Director Giles Willson, pictured, said: “This is very positive for all connected with the GGF and in particular those who have developed the course to this level over many years of hard work. It makes the G15 awards even more special this year for the GGF.”

GGF Training provides glaziers with a risk-based approach for avoiding mistakes, in line with the latest legislation; and prepares them with the explanations required in describing to clients, and those responsible for buildings, why important aspects require particular care and consideration.

The training development is effectively the glass and glazing sector’s response to Government following the 2010 Fire Futures review which signalled Government intent to take a step back in favour of encouraging the fire safety sector itself to take on greater responsibility for fire safety in practice.
