Baumit Approved Installer
Training Course


The Baumit Approved Installer Course is a two-day course.

On day one, the course begins with a short classroom session which provides an overview of Baumit EWI systems and best practice for installation. We then move on to the practical session hosted in our purpose-built training booths to provide you with hands on experience of fixing base profiles, insulation boarding, beading, basecoats and mesh. 

On day two you will have a chance to review your work from day one before moving on to the second practical session which covers the application of primer, render topcoats and finishing.

The course will feature customised content throughout concerning the EWI system options and scenario-based requirements suitable to your company, as well as further in-depth details on legislation updates and NIA content where applicable.

After completion of this 2-day course you will leave with Baumit Approved Installer status. This will be followed by on-site project assessments to achieve Silver or Gold Approved Installer status.
