Leading roofing accessories manufacturer, Klober has launched its Training Zone, now available for merchant teams.
Developed in response to demand for manufacturer-led training and endorsed by BMI Group, the online learning platform offers on-demand courses, videos and other materials. It’s launch comes after Klober’s 2022 insights survey found that over one third (39%) of merchants want more training from manufacturers.
From the latest updates in roofing theory and British Standards to the ‘How to Install’ courses, each module has been developed in collaboration with roofing experts to provide information that will be most beneficial at the trade counter.
Pauline Manley, marketing director at Klober, said: “Learning and development has long been a focus here at Klober and we’ve worked hard to consolidate our training offering for merchants and stockists. It’s important for merchants to feel confident when it comes to advising contractors on the best roofing solutions for specific applications, and understanding products is a huge part of authentic sales.”
Individuals can track and share their progress through the ‘My Dashboard’ area of platform which saves progress and certificates for all learning activity. The Klober Training Zone also includes a number of useful resources available for download, which can be at a later date.
“As much as we all agree that training is important, time constraints can make it challenging to navigate,” Pauline explained. “Our survey findings reinforced this, with time being highlighted as a key barrier to training uptake. This is why creating a learning platform that allows for flexibility is so important.
“We will continue our in-person courses in Castle Donington for practical training but having an option that enables learners to access theory and product information remotely and at a time that suits them is the ideal solution. Our courses will be regularly reviewed against industry trends and regulations and our ears are open for ongoing feedback to ensure users get the best experience possible.”
