Course contents

This one-day beginners’ course gives attendees an ability to read and interpret construction drawings through a day of interactive learning.

The delegates will get interactive with a package of drawings such as:

Your LABC Warranty trainer will also allow delegated time to familiarise themselves with construction drawings, and to start to draw and sketch some basic symbols, shapes, and lines. These will be used in a group discussion to drive home understanding of construction drawings and buildings.
