If you follow us on social media, you would have seen some photographs from our recent Dek-King training course. The course provides an excellent introduction for future fabricators to working with our Dek-King synthetic teak. Run over three days the course allows delegates to develop their skills in a friendly group environment alongside our experienced trainer.


We are proud to have run two of these popular training courses already this year from which a total of seventeen new fabricators have qualified.


The first course took place in January at the headquarters of our US distributor, World Panel Products over in Florida. The five attendees came from East and West coast USA as well as Canada. These skilled individuals will further strengthen the network of Dek-King fabricators and fitters throughout North America supplying decks and panels throughout the marine industry to OEM, trade and retail customs alike.


February’s training course was performed at Wilks here in Essex for a total of twelve delegates from marine companies spanning Germany, Italy and Malta. This was the largest Dek-King training course to date and saw delegates rapid advancement from welding gun novices through to panel fabricators by the completion of the course.


Our Dek-King training course focuses on the different techniques used in deck fabrication whilst providing the opportunity for professional networking. Starting with basic welding methods through to panel fabrication, margins, corner styles and mitres. Skills taught are combined to allow the creation of panels which feature hatches and other deck fittings. On completion we aim for delegates to be confident in creating swept decks featuring herringbone detailing. Further continued professional development is encouraged as delegates gain access to online Dek-King training manuals and videos.
