Resin flooring framework - feedback wanted on joints


With the Resin Flooring Network website launched and the 3-month review period for the draft framework underway, I’ve put together a series of posts aimed at encouraging input from industry stakeholders.

Over the coming weeks I’ll be posting the core elements of the draft framework so that everyone can see what the training program looks like so far and, more importantly, how they might contribute to developing it further.

The tenth element is joints, with the proposed Scope, Key Learning Outcomes, Theoretical Assessment Criteria and Practical Assessment Criteria detailed below.
