    I am an experienced traditional window cleaner, but I am a novice when it comes to wfp cleaning. I have asked a lot of questions and I have good pole control and a reasonable idea of proper technique, but I do wonder if it would be a benefit to go on one of those training days.

    There's training43.com and BWCA, that offer a day course.

    Has anyone been on one of these, or would they recommend going on one?

    I was going to name the company, but thought it might cause embarrassment to them.

    How much real experience could you get in one day? You will learn more by making mistakes and then correcting them. If you are thorough and check your work you will get a confidence in your ability, just keep working and you will learn so much more.
    It's same as driving lessons, when you pass the test that's when you really learn to drive.
    Save your money and put it into advertising instead, much more beneficial.
