Main Laying & Service Laying

Our Service and Mains Laying Programme is completely flexible to suit your requirements.

We don’t believe in training for the sake of it, so we build a programme focusing on exactly what you want and need. For example, we can run short half day sessions for individual subjects such a drilling and tapping or electrofusion welding, right through to a six day programme that covers your exact requirements.

Due to the bespoke nature of our programme, you will not receive a formal qualification, however our training mirrors the requirements of the QCF for Network Construction operations in Water Distribution.

Here is a selection of what we can cover, and what we have been asked to cover in the past:

  • Historical and current pipe materials /SDR
