MUTA Instruct – Frame Marquee

MUTA launches MUTA Instruct – Frame Marquee course for new crew

MUTA, the UK’s trade association for marquees, tents and structures, has launched MUTA Instruct – Frame Marquee, a course designed for crew members and new starters, that covers the fundamentals of how to erect a frame marquee safely and effectively.

The course consists of four key modules and videos. At end of each module, candidates need to complete a short series of assessment questions before progressing. If the candidate answers the questions correctly, a certificate will be issued at the end of the course.

The course costs £29.99 (+VAT) per user for MUTA members and £39.99 (+VAT) per user for non-members.

The course, revealed at MUTA Members’ Day, has been in development since July 2022 with MUTA’s training working group (TWG) overseeing the progress.

The TWG comprises Roder UK’s Lee Dalton, Highfield Event Group’s Garry Chapman, Neptunus’ Tim Hall, and MUTA’s Tony Perfect and Joe Chalk.

Dalton said: “I’m delighted MUTA has expanded its range of training courses. MUTA Instruct – Frame Marquee is quick, affordable, easy-to-access and most importantly, it gives business owners peace of mind that their teams have received formal, industry training.

“I’d like to thank my fellow team members on the TWG for their efforts, MUTA’s Executive Committee for its backing, and the Event Industry Forum for funding 50 per cent of the development costs.

“I hope that with the support of MUTA members, and the wider temporary structure and events industry, we will be able to continue to develop sector-specific training opportunities.”
