Training

If you are interested in the business opportunities that exist within the industry and are thinking of setting up or expanding your operation, or indeed looking for refresher courses for you or your team, you are at the right place. We offer courses such as classroom theory, refresher and on-site for all products and systems, as well as contractor support across all types of installation challenges.

Training Courses

The comprehensive packages available for all of our systems are tailored to suit every type of business, regardless of size and include both practical, theory and on-site installations.

WALLCRETE – 11th Jul

People are always amazed by what can be achieved with Wallcrete and most people can see the huge potential the product has for covering vertical surfaces, both internally and externally. Tradesmen have been successfully applying renders to very old properties, and these very basic renders have remained stuck to the wall for hundreds of years. PICS have taken decorative renders a few steps further. Wallcrete is a very advanced, lightweight render. It is far superior to a ‘normal’ render in terms of technical performance and what can be done with it.

Testimonials

I’ll keep this short, I just wanted to contact you regarding the guys in the Manchester depot. On numerous occasions they have both gone above & beyond to help me & my business. Sometimes this advice has also been via the phone on a weekend or even when on their holidays. (I did not know they were on holiday when they replied !!!) This behaviour is what makes us keep you as our sole supplier.

There have been many times I have been contacted by other suppliers to buy their products & tools but the advice, help & service I get is one of the main reasons we keep using PICS.

Going above and beyond

Just thought I’d write you a quick email before I break for Xmas to say thank you to you and all your staff for the service and support they provide. I find the quality of PICS products along with industry knowledge unrivalled. I Look forward to working with PICS again next year.

Thanks for the confirmation and thanks to Stefan and John for all of their help in getting this sorted. I only wish I had spoken to you guys sooner. I wasted over a week messing around with ****** Concrete – they are rubbish.”

I would like to again thank you for the course I attended today. The way you delivered the course and the wide ranging topics within the course from A to Z was second to none. I’ve been on many courses from First Aid to Director level management, and as a novice within stamping concrete you covered every question I wanted to ask without me having to ask it.

I didn’t know concreting could be so interesting!

Thank you again.
