SAPCA has improved the standards and laid out guidelines for people working in this niche area and that's good for everyone involved.
As well as SAPCA, the college worked closely with SkillsActive, the Sector Skills Council for the sports industry.
The assessment will take place on site with associated training provided at South Birmingham College's specialist Centre for the Built Environment in Bordesley Green, which was formally adopted by SAPCA as its National Training Centre.
Raising standards throughout the UK is one of the main reasons SAPCA and South Birmingham College launched the qualification for installing and maintaining sports and play surfaces.
We are delighted to have been able to provide the first headquarters for SAPCA and support its ambition to move forward as a national association into its third decade here.
