DMR now offers roofing apprenticeships at DMR Roofing Academy, our specialist roof training centre in Wigan town centre. We developed the academy in response to the growing skills shortage in the industry as well as the absence of quality roof training provision in the area.

Under the guidance of experienced tutors, trainees will gain fundamental roofing skills in tiling, slating and lead work. They will also acquire a thorough knowledge of construction health and safety including working at heights and the correct use of hand tools. All apprentices who attend the academy will work towards their diploma – an important part of their roofing apprenticeship framework.

Facilities at the academy include fully equipped workshops and roofing rigs, a break room, canteen, kitchen area and parking. The Academy is located on Prescott Street, a short walk from Wigan North and Wallgate train stations and the bus station.

DMR Roofing Academy ready for the first intake of apprentices in September 2018
