Training with CIT

CIT, experts on CWI and EWI products, now provides essential training on how to achieve technically compliant installations, therefore avoiding the risk of insulation failures. Classroom and field based training courses are tailored to meet the requirements of local authority and housing association staff.

First invented in the 19th century and introduced in its current form into general housing during the 1970s, wall insulation is arguably one of the best heat and energy saving developments in history.

However, during the last 30 years the number of products and installation methods have increased significantly, and this is why the CIT have put in place a range of classroom and field based training programmes for Local Authorities and Housing Associations staff to help them understand the circumstances which need to be in place to be assured of a successful retrofit project. Our courses provide the following:

CIT offers expert training to employees of public and private sector organisations. Our classroom and field-based training provides attendees with a basic technical knowledge of Cavity and External wall insulation retro-fit systems and their relationships with:

  • Property suitability assessment
  • Installation requirements
  • CASSTM (Cavity Assessment Surveillance Scheme)
  • Sources of reliable products
  • Competent persons
  • Associated guarantees
  • Contract specifications

The aim is to help people understand why and how many installations fail, or simply should not have been commissioned in the first place, providing a solid, fact based understanding of what to look out for when looking into housing stock investments or dealing with property insulation retrofits.

Our rolling programme of courses are delivered throughout the UK and can be delivered in your place of work (minimum number of attendees 10).

Courses take place either in the morning or afternoon and typically last for four hours.

Cost per course: £200 plus vat
