IKO launches brand new training centre ‘IKO Experience Center’ in Belgium
Free training for construction professionals in the IKO Experience Center
On 17 September, IKO opened its brand new IKO Experience Center in Antwerp. With this revamped training centre, we intend to share our many years of experience and knowledge even more easily with (future) partners.
Sharing knowledge for the future of our industry
The IKO Experience Center builds upon the success of the former Training Center. However, we are taking an even more ambitious and professional approach this time. Both construction professionals and retail professionals can visit the Experience Center for free training and refresher courses.
“We’ve built the brand-new IKO Experience Center to share knowledge with construction professionals: traders, roofers, engineers, installers, architects, etc. After all, it’s ultimately these people who’ll build the future of our industry. Professionally recommended, professionally sold and professionally installed. That is the heart of the matter”.
explains our CEO Dirk Theuns.
Different training courses
The training offering has been expanded. Interested participants can now attend for a range of training courses in professionally fitting bituminous and plastic IKO roofing membranes, liquid IKO flexia waterproofing systems and IKO enertherm insulation, as well as for a number of advanced training courses in becoming a certified IKO installer. It is even possible to request a fully customised training course. Each training and refresher course is led by an experienced instructor.
To give you a taste of what you can see and experience at the Experience Center, IKO has created a virtual tour.
Training courses in complete safety
Of course, the IKO Experience Center will take all necessary precautions to make sure every training and refresher course takes place in complete safety, including during the corona pandemic. That way, everyone can improve their skills with peace of mind.
Apart from the spacious practical training area, a specially equipped training area has been built for training courses on IKO flexia liquid waterproofing. In addition, there is the facility to move the large training replicas outside for a realistic outdoor experience. The IKO Experience Center contains a “full experience”: a cozy room for receiving guests, a spacious meeting room, the rooms for the theoretical and practical training courses, and the various “showcase” rooms where the IKO products play a leading role.
