AAJ Installation workshop proves valuable

A one-day Architectural Aluminium Joinery installation workshop was held on 13 August at Metro Glass in Auckland. Organised by BCITO, as part of the National Certificate in Architectural Aluminium Joinery (Installation), this workshop is a valuable way to learn the correct way to install to E2/AS1.

Six installers attended and gained unit standards towards their qualification.

The day comprises a power point presentation in the morning and practical, hands-on work. In the afternoon apprentices finish off their workshop units and are assessed.AAJ Installation workshop proves valuable

Presented by two industry professionals and BCITO, these workshops are organised around the country and can be scheduled as soon as numbers (minimum of 6 attendees) are guaranteed.

You don’t need to be enrolled in the qualification to attend and as builders sign off on the installers work they could also benefit greatly from attending and achieve 4 points towards LBP at the same time.

Many thanks to Fletchers, Fairview Systems, National Aluminium and Architectural Profiles for donations of materials used in these workshops.

The next workshop is tentatively scheduled for mid-October in either Christchurch or Nelson.

If you’re keen for more information or want to register your interest in attending please contact Michele McDonald at BCITO on 04 803 9333 or email michele.mcdonald@bcito.org.nz
