CD UK First to Offer Solid Surface Qualifications

CD UK First to Offer Solid Surface Qualifications

CD (UK) Ltd, the distributors of DuPont™ Corian® have joined forces with Webs Furniture Training to gain certification for its Corian® solid surface fabrication and fitter training courses.

All individuals trained by CD UK in either fabricating or installing Corian® will now gain evidence towards passing the City and Guilds Level 2 Diploma in Furniture, Interiors and Wood Machining Unit 229 Fit and Fix Worksurfaces.

At the same time apprenticeship students at Webs Furniture Training who participate in their full NVQ Course will all go through a specific module in solid surface worktop installation ’“ a first for the KBB industry.

The aim of the scheme is to create employment opportunities and to sustain high standards in the kitchen industry for solid surface worktop fabrication and installation:

  • As the solid surface industry grows, CD UK is ensuring that Corian®, as the market leader, is the first to develop opportunities for individuals to gain certified qualifications in both the fabrication and installation of solid surface.
  • In turn, this should assist established Corian® fabricators to find new employees who already have relevant solid surface qualifications and experience.
