Apprenticeship Program and Training
Richardson Roofing are committed to helping younger generations build a brighter and better future. As a part of this, over the last 12 years, we have had a fully working and operational apprenticeship program. This has seen three individuals go all the way to the top three within the regional college finals. One of our junior apprentices was asked to represent England in Russia by the National Federation of Roofing. Enrolment to roofing college, Lead development courses, SMSTS courses and first aid training are all a common and frequent occurrence at RRCL.
