The key to safe and competent installation of metal decking and shear connectors is the use of a qualified workforce.

The UKMDA have teamed up with TQUK, one of the leading construction qualification providers, to provide robust National Vocational Qualifications for both Metal Decking and Stud Welding operations. These qualifications are nationally recognised, and result in a skilled worker CSCS card in the chosen occupation.

If your installers hold the NVQ, you can rest assured that they have been rigorously assessed to ensure they are competent to install your composite metal floor.
