Material Awareness & CPDs

We have both bespoke designed outdoor skills area and indoor training facility, specially developed for the highways maintenance, streetscape, tiling, commercial flooring and internal finishing markets. Our outside zones mimic closely the external environment for carriageway and reinstatement applications, whilst indoor provides purpose built areas to plan, practice and perfect your skills to benefit from our high performance products.

Our material awareness sessions are not designed to train contractors how to do their job. We understand that the majority of our customers have extensive experience. Our material awareness sessions are designed to offer the opportunity to trial alternative materials and become familiar with products prior to use.


We offer CPD presentations that include three fully RIBA Accredited seminars, detailed below. Our Paving the Way CPD is also accredited by the RIAI. We provide high quality programmes, which are continually reviewed and updated, enabling our customers to stay ahead in today's fast moving environment. With an experienced team of professional speakers who are experts in their field, Instarmac has been offering industry related CPD presentations for over 8 years.
