The five building maintenance courses in the City & Guilds training programme
The module highlights areas that should be maintained and which can become problematic because of neglect, or as a result of defect in materials. This knowledge is important for the effective diagnosis of common problems in domestic properties.
The course also provides guidelines for advising tenants on common problems associated with damp and condensation.
It covers subjects like where electricity enters the home and how it is distributed throughout a property to provide power that generates heat and light. It flags the different problems that can arise along the way that can risk property safety and create discomfort to residents.
If appropriate repairs are not carried out promptly it can lead to expensive repairs way beyond the original problem because of damage caused to decoration, walls, ceilings and floor.
It is a practical unit that acknowledges the legislation governing social landlord repairs and takes account of the diagnostic and reporting role that staff members conduct.
Once all five modules have been completed, candidates sit a short assessment. On successful completion of this, they can be awarded the City & Guilds accredited Understanding Buildings and Managing Repairs certificate.
