Rubber Lining Foundation Level 1 (Code #: RLQ-1) provides consistent and reliable outcomes for all stakeholders in the delivery of Rubber Lining projects, both in a workshop and site setting. This course is relevant to Rubber Lining Technicians, whether a new starter or an experienced tradesman. Upon completion of this theory course, the training program will run based on peer review evaluation of the current skills of the Rubber Lining Technician, verification of competency and setting achievable training and development targets as required.


Key benefits of the training for RLQ-1 are as follows:


Consistent Outcomes: tangible benefits regarding project assignment of personnel to specific tasks that match their level of competency. Leading to predictable, efficient, quality outcomes with built-in SOPs.


Skills Verification and Verifiable Records: Project Stakeholders can verify via Training Records that the Rubber Lining technicians meet the skill requirements for the type of Rubber Lining Project and complexity level.


Development of Personnel: Rubber Lining Technicians develop further skills and confidence in their own ability leading to increased job satisfaction and improved quality workmanship conducted in a safe manner – a “Win Win” for all stakeholders.


Sharing of Knowledge and Innovation: the training will lead to greater cohesion in the Rubber Lining Industry where all Stakeholders work to a consensus based on industry best practice and shared knowledge leading to innovation.


Scalable benefits: as the training program comes online, over time there will be scale benefits through targeted training needs based on individual skills assessments leading to career development opportunities for the trainee and accelerated growth efficiencies for Employers, Employees and Project Stakeholders.
