Doug Barron, an employee of Manchester based timber importers and merchants, G E Robinson Ltd, recently completed the Woodexperts Level 4 Certificate in Wood Science & Timber Technology.

Doug has written to course tutor, Jim Coulson, saying “thank you all very much for your excellent tuition and help in my gaining a Pass with Distinction in the Level 4 exam in May. I had not done anything like this since I left school in 1978, so I had no idea what I would achieve in this exam.  I am fifty-six, but have only been in this industry two years so the course has taught me a huge amount about the wider timber and sheet material industry.”

Doug undertook a tutored course, with students required to do homework and mock exam questions.  The Certificate is awarded following successful completion of two written Exam Papers.

Doug and other successful students will attend a Certificate Presentation ceremony at the upcoming October Timber Expo.
