Mr X, London  “I wish I had attended Delta’s training course sooner, Great course – well done Chris, it covered everything that I expected and more”

Why attend a Delta training course?

As the leading brand in Cavity Drain Membranes (type C), we’re here to help you take the next step on your professional development journey. Attending a Delta course will enhance your earning potential as Delta Registered Installers are able to furnish clients with a 30 year product guarantee offering peace of mind and confidence.

Delta Membranes’ focus is to provide a training course which delivers long-term value to those in the waterproofing sector. Delta Membranes seeks to nurture talents and to share new approaches to Type C waterproofing/damp proofing, we work with one aim in mind: to help you understand water ingress, principles of waterproofing design, product selection and correct product installation.

Learning is not just about sitting in a classroom, that’s why we have a fully functional sump & pump training room. This specially designed space has been adapted to provide you with a unique ‘hands-on’ training experience.

Unfortunately, over many years, we have encountered many failed Type C Systems (Cavity Drain) due to poor installation and/or poor design or a combination of both. As manufacturers we do our very best to keep a great name for the industry which we believe it deserves. Attend a Delta course and get the design and installation right from the outset.
