Had a great day getting to know your products. Over the years I’ve completed many training sessions but have to say the day spent with Pete was by far the best. Great to be on board.

The CDUK training academy

CDUK has invested in a brand new 2700m2 training centre in Surrey, purpose designed exclusively for training with our range of surface materials and complementary products. With brand new equipment and workstations, delivered by a highly experienced and enthusiastic team, our range of courses is structured to cater for all levels of expertise: from apprentices, joiners or woodworking specialists, on to solid surface fabricators looking to upskill, complete a refresher course or discover new techniques.

The benefits of training with CDUK

We develop specialist training courses for the surfaces and products in our portfolio. The quality and workmanship of a finished product or surface is extremely important to us. By sharing our product knowledge, and demonstrating best practice techniques alongside safety awareness, we can deliver outstanding results for our clients.

We train small groups, up to a maximum of 12 trainees, to ensure we can deliver focused training sessions. This is ideal for the individual trainees’ expertise and a real positive in terms of expanded skills sets and streamlined working practices for your business. Courses include fabrication training and fitter training, plus specialist training days which can be tailored to suit your specific requirements.

Upon successfully completing the course, trainees receive a CDUK training certificate and we provide opportunities for companies and individuals to gain certified qualifications in both the fabrication and installation of surface materials.
