Boxer offers knock-out training opportunities on flooring company scheme

A Hull boxer is collaborating with flooring installation company Vuba to give jobseekers 10 free places on the Yorkshire company’s training course.

Boxer Tommy Coyle is offering the training sponsorship opportunities to young individuals and those seeking work to take part in one of Vuba’s Resin Bound courses to help them to develop new skills and learn a new trade. The course is currently open to applicants.

Vuba began running its training courses for contractors, builders and enthusiasts of all experience levels in January 2018 due to high demand for approved contractors as a result of the popularity of their products. The courses provide training on how to install resin bound systems.

Vuba has trained almost 200 contractors in 2018, with more than 100 projects being completed by graduates of the training scheme. Course attendees receive certification, and the opportunity to become an approved contractor for Vuba Building Products.
