What is the BMI Academy?

The BMI Academy in South Cerney, Gloucestershire, offers best-in-class training and comprises possibly the most comprehensive roofing training resource in the country. 

The BMI Academy delivers training to architects, contractors, housebuilders, merchants, local authorities and housing associations for both pitched and flat roofing. The academy collaborates with specification and site professionals to improve standards, compliance and the use of new technologies and techniques on site.

With an industry-leading mix of theory and practical courses, from RIBA-approved CPDs to installation and estimating courses, the BMI Academy offers the chance to develop and improve knowledge and skills to those in the roofing sector at all levels.

Bespoke and mobile training services are available on demand, meaning that BMI is able to tailor courses to suit the company’s specific needs at the academy facilities in Gloucester and Manchester.

As the drive to recruit more roofers and professionalise the roofing sector continues, the BMI Academy also works in education to support those studying towards a qualified status.

Colleges and roof training groups ensure that the next generation of roofers join the trade with the required skill sets and practical experience, and the BMI Academy seeks to share its expertise and resources with these learners through its college engagement programme – providing product and delivering training for new systems. It also brings together the UK’s roofing tutors at regular forums to discuss important subjects, such as common qualification revisions and changes to British Standards.
