Has any one done a 3 day jointing course, any good and if so what can you get out of it. Is it worth the doing and cost
I did the Lafarge course several years ago as did not know how the machines worked, how to use them ,and how to clean and maintain them.
I found the course useful and learnt a lot, I found that the Bazooka was the hardest thing to use, and would need constant usage to become adept at using it.
I think it cost around £200 back then, worth doing though.
I did the BG mechanical jointing course at Erith in the mid 90's. It was meant to be a 5 day event but only 2 from a supposed 6 (me and a fellow from Southampton) turned up so we were done in 4. I paid for it myself and my recollection is that it cost about £250 at the time.
I didnt know how to operate the taping gun or strip it down beforehand so I found this course worth every penny. I probably wouldnt have had the balls to go it alone into self employment if I hadnt done this training.
I think Marcus at Belmore was offering a free course if you bought a taping kit not so long ago. I will find out for you.

the britisg gypsum taping course in cockslake carlisle ,4 day course
i did that courese in 1983 in those days it was free as long as your company telephoned them for you,
it was a very useful course , used gun for putting tapes on walls ceilings and angles,
boxes , corner finisher etc
the last day you striped the gun , changed cutting blade ,and barrel cable , also cleaning it etc,
was a very useful course in those days
then when you went too your 1st taping job the rep from bg would come out for 2-3 days and keep you right
changed days now ,
