    Unless things have changed since I last spoke to them, they don't run training courses for small subbies.

    It seems if you have a job big enough to warrant USG coming onto your site for a few days and showing you the ropes then its a possibility.... but seeing as I havent had a fair sized contract of my own for over 2 years, theres a high probability of me not ever being given the chance to tape a mega thousand square metre job again due to whats happened in the building industry, that takes me out the game completely.

    I may be wrong, but a criteria such as this could exclude them from getting to know many taping contractors who are still to make it to the bigtime, converting them away from using competitors materials and also missing the opportunity to generate cash from hosting regular training courses like BG do at Penrith and Erith. Their product and system is good and it seems everyone wants it, but nobody can have it. I must know around 50 tapers and don't know a single one who's an approved USG level 5 contractor.

    For now they're getting away with it, but thats maybe only until a rival comes in with an equally good product and provides what everyone is asking for???

    Sorry you guys at USG Peterlee, my opinions have to be open and honest but you know I still love you all

    Can anyone tell me what the course covers at BG and does it cost anything?

    BG don't offer on site training do they?

    I guess this is where things get sticky - USG Don't sell loads of Automatic taping tools like BG, do you think they should offer the level 5 training to all at a cost Alex?

    I like their materials and what Ive seen of the level 5. I really do, so why not? Of course I would pay but if this all kicks off due to my prompts I would expect some kind of discount though...

    Why ignore an eager market that knows your product and will buy it..... who will surely let all their customers and partners in the trade know? And will it happen before or after a rival makes an alternate product available to everyone?
