Roof lead welding and bossing course

The first hands-on roof training experience in using lead comes in the form of the basic bossing and welding course. Bossing and welding are the two most common skills used by today's roofers, slaters, tilers and lead-workers.

lead bossing and welding training success

This LSA-approved roofing course provides a starting point for learning these essential foundations of roof lead-work practice, creating an effective learning experience by teaching in small groups with an emphasis on practical achievement.

On completion of the course, novice roofers should understand the health and safety procedures for working with lead sheet and be able to form lead-work details using bossing and welding techniques.

Who should attend?

I highly recommend this course. It was extremely informative whilst remaining enjoyable. Reeve Miles, Scott Miles Roofing Ltd

Whilst there are no special entry requirements this course would be useful for roofers and building contractors who want to become more skilled in the prefabrication and installation of typical lead flashing details.

Rooftrain has everything you need to become a better roofer. The equipment and teaching is the best. Thank you. Ciaran Quinn, Scott Miles Roofing Ltd
