BMF Building Blocks

BMF Product Knowledge Training

Providing our members the very best industry training has always been a key objective at the BMF. We recognise that highly trained and knowledgeable staff set our members apart from their competitors and in the fast moving markets of the 21st century it’s vital that frontline staff have the latest information at their fingertips. 

The Future of Knowledge

BMF Building Blocks is a brand new flexible programme of online training designed to replace the MOL distance learning workbooks which were retired in 2018. The Building Blocks series is designed to introduce apprentices, new starters and existing staff looking to broaden their knowledge to the intricacies of life in a builders’ merchant. It starts with foundation Blocks that cover planning, regulations and structural components, moves on to cover key product groups and ultimately builds into a comprehensive guide to the industry and the products stocked and sold by every type of merchant.

The Programme 

BMF Building Blocks is one of the most comprehensive industry training programmes we have ever undertaken.
Once completed this will consist of over 100 e-learning modules divided into 15 Blocks.

As a guide, the average Block will consist of 6 – 8 modules providing around 10 hours of directed learning. Every
Block will cover a specific industry topic and the online training combines video, animation and interactive content
to bring the subjects to life. They also include a final assessment module, additional course reading, weblinks and
work-based exercises for further onsite training.

How does it Work? 

Learners: Once registered learners log in to BMF Campus and access their current training Block from their individual profile. They will have reading to do from a range of downloadable documents, e-learning modules to complete and finally each topic has associated mini ‘action learning’ tasks to complete. Each Block concludes with a demanding Assessment, successful completion of which generates a unique certificate for the learner, which they can save or download for printing if they wish. Once the accreditation process is complete, those who achieve Award status will receive a printed certificate from OA.

Managers: BMF Campus has a clear and easy to use manager interface so learners’ line managers can track progress and check on module and Block Assessment results. They will also be able to check on the action learning tasks, and sign off on the offline elements of the training.
