New courses cover kitchen & bathroom design principles and project management
The NTG has announced two new design courses for 2012. They will be delivered in a collaboration between EQ Software, the NTG (National Training Group) and the Bathroom Manufacturers Association's Bathroom Academy. These two day courses are aimed at professional kitchen or bathroom designers as well as new entrants into the kbb market.
Day one (Design Principles) guides delegates through the design process, from taking an initial client brief, preparing an accurate survey and creating a working plan, to presenting the design and securing the sale. This module creates an awareness of current building regulations, design trends and techniques and couples these with practical sessions.
Day two (Project Management) enables delegates to effectively manage their projects from the quoting stage to successful completion and customer sign off. From initially building the quotation, delegates learn how to professionally create and manage project milestones, track profit margins, control installation timelines and handle all the invoicing and payments.
Successful candidates will be awarded an industry recognised certificate of achievement accredited by the National Training Group, which will count towards CPD targets. These courses are part of the upskilling strategies for the kbb markets and are open to all designers/trainees in the industry, not just for EQ Software users.
Each course is approved and endorsed by the National Training Group NTG, Bathroom Academy and Kitchen & Bathroom Specialists Association KBSA.
Renee Mascari, CEO of the NTG, says: "We are delighted to be part of this industry initiative which has its main focus on design, as excellence in design is often the key element to a successful project - and as many retailers are finding out, good design will always win through.
"It is also an example of key players in our industry working together in the common cause of increasing professionalism."
