The British Institute of Kitchen, Bedroom & Bathroom Installation (BiKBBI) have launched their new and vastly improved online training portal, named BiKBBI Campus at KBB Birmingham today. Campus has been created to deliver intuitive online learning and development opportunities to its members and the wider installer community.
The online service will provide installers with direct access to training and development delivered by BiKBBI’s corporate sponsors and retail partners. The innovative platform mixes traditional online learning within a social media / community environment, providing users with a familiar, modern and responsive website from which to learn.
Course providers, exclusive to BiKBBI’s corporate sponsors and retail partners, have the opportunity to create and deliver online training tailored to their product or service, which will up-skill the workforce and share the respective brand with BiKBBI’s wider audience. The aim is to also reduce remedial requirements, which will reduce costs and brand risk as well as consumer confidence within the industry.
Speaking on behalf of BiKBBI, CEO Damian Walters, said: “Learning and development is crucial for our industry’s survival. Products are evolving along with consumer expectations and therefore anyone undervaluing training will be left behind.”
Current BiKBBI sponsor Häfele is amongst the first to deliver training via Campus. Speaking on behalf of Häfele, Natalie Davenport, Head of Marketing (pictured), said: “We’re proud to support Campus as it’s a fantastic initiative to help installers expand their skills and further their business by learning how to install our AluSplash range of splashbacks with ease. Our sponsorship of Campus is one of the many ways we’ll be supporting the KBB industry through education and training in 2020.”
Damian added: “Campus really is the future of online training. The plan is to link those who have completed online Campus courses to consumers as ‘trained installers’ via the Protected platform. For the first time, participating BiKBBI Corporate Sponsors will be able to confidently and independently signpost consumers to a network of professional installers, who are both compliant and trained to install specific products. The Protected platform then provides the consumer and the installer with a number of protective measures that is a win-win scenario for all.
