Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) Level 2 Diploma in Steel Fixing
The Steel Fixing course aims to equip you, the learner, with the skills, knowledge, and competencies required to work as Steel Fixers in the Construction Industry.
A steel fixer cuts and bends reinforced steel, and then binds it using stirrups made of thinner pieces of reinforced steel. Annealed wire is then used to attach the stirrups to the reinforced steel. It is then ready to be used where required in buildings for example in columns and foundations.
You will learn key practical skills and knowledge in:
– Conforming to General Health, Safety and Welfare in the Workplace
– Conforming to Productive Working Practices in the Workplace
– Moving, Handling and Storing Resources in the Workplace
– Cutting and Bending Reinforcement Steel to Shape in the Workplace
– Fixing Steel in Situ in the Workplace
– Prefabricating Reinforcement Steel Sections in the Workplace
The qualification is for learners who work or want to work as a steelfixer in the construction sector.
This is an Instructor-led, full-time day course. It is a hands on, practice based course.
