Online PR News – 13-May-2010 – – The Irish Timber Frame Manufacturers’ Association (ITFMA) has announced that it is to receive funding from Skillnets to cover its training activities in the Republic of Ireland for the rest of 2010.

Commenting on the announcement Philip Mahony, ITFMA Manager, said “the receipt of this funding will enable us to build on the success of what we have achieved during 2008 and 2009. Training will be offered under the banner of The Eco Construction Skillnet and our programme will include courses covering both eco home and PassivHaus design as well as a number of retrofitting courses which will be of particular interest to insulation installers and to suppliers of renewable technologies.”

Mahony then went on to say that the funding would also allow for the continuation of the ITFMA’s City & Guilds accredited training course for timber frame site erectors. “Our ultimate aim is to ensure that timber frame dwellings in Ireland are only erected by certified personnel and this course provides the means to achieve our ambition.”

The Eco Construction Skillnet is funded by member companies and the Training Networks Programme, an initiative of Skillnets Ltd funded from the National Training Fund through the Department of Enterprise, Trade & Innovation.
