The scheme provides individuals with access to a structured programme of learning, focusing on the key elements required when installing timber frame and SIP’s buildings, including health and safety, installation of structural timber systems, roofs, and cavity barriers plus other general construction considerations.
Each installer is also required to undertake and successfully complete the invigilated online ITS end test, which is a series of multiple-choice questions based on the key elements of learning featured in the supporting installer training manual.
STA Designer Training Scheme (DTS)
The STA Designer Training Scheme has been produced to provide sector-specific learning support for timber frame fabrication designers.
The scheme content covers health and safety considerations, designer knowledge requirements and practical skills, as well as including the key responsibilities for specifying timber frame components in accordance with architect’s drawings and timber frame manufacturer systems.
Subjects included in the series of workbooks are relevant to building design, to ensure that timber frame fabrication designers are aware of the context of their work. Topics include, but are not limited to, drawing oﬀice interface and procedures, multi-storey timber frame buildings, engineering, diﬀerential movement, fire prevention, risk assessment and management.
The scheme is currently suspended as we are developing our new skills portal. During this suspension period, the STA will be happy to issue a letter of dispensation to STA Designer member companies on request, where existing Designer certification has already expired, or may expire during the planned suspension period.
