The Elydan Group Training Centre offers courses tailored to the requirements of construction industry professionals. All our courses are run by experts in their fields.

Elydan can help you learn about polyethylene’s different fields of application and technical aspects in the various markets it serves.

We run training courses and information sessions on a range of products and trades, such as:

  • The use of polyethylene to supply drinking water
  • Welding polyethylene
  • Dry networks
  • Renewable energy – geothermal solutions

These workshops also cover the technical and regulatory aspects of installation. Our courses can be held on our premises or at yours, and can take the form of standard modules or bespoke sessions.
