Practical knowledge on VRS

When you train with HT-UK, you will benefit from in-depth knowledge and practical experience that goes beyond the manufacturers' installation manual

Students are able to fast-track their skills to understand essential tips and 'how-to' that better prepare them for dealing with varying circumstances. Graduates of the courses are safer, more efficient and overall more competent when trained by people who really know the systems.

New installers are able to practise assembly and hone their skills of the actual VRS in a safe environment. The next time they see the system, it may be dark, cold/wet, adjacent to live traffic and with a limited time-scale to install. It is vital, therefore, that they receive the best possible instruction.
