Module 2: windows, doors and staircases. This session concentrates on carpentry and includes windows, doors and staircases.


This course provides a basic grounding in building construction for those who are new to the field of housing, where job requirements include the inspection and surveying of domestic dwellings. The fundamentals of building construction course will be a detailed introduction to commonly used building terms, which intends to demystify the jargon used in the construction industry.

We have developed a series of five two-hour training module sessions so you can tailor training needs to your requirements. All elements from the building foundations to the roof will be considered, and there will be coverage of traditional methods of building construction, signs of failure of building components and potential remedies.

Who should attend?

These bitesize sessions will appeal to all newly qualified environmental health officers, housing surveyors and managers from both the public and private sectors.

CPD: 2 hours
