Tiling training needs to begin with a vision of where you want to end up. What design would you like. Is it a wet shower, kitchen, bathroom etc. Together we will make a plan then we can begin.
No entry qualifications are required, but you will need some tools. Tradesmans Entrance will provide your own new quality tools at the beginning of the course.
Although our Tiling courses will be defined from a set curriculum, the mix of topics will be to suit your requirements. If you have a specific project in mind then just let us know.
If you don't want the hassle and expense of sitting exams and tests then we offer low cost, affordable skills training which comes with your own portfolio, real photographs and Professional Certificate from Tradesmans Entrance Ltd.
We will teach you how to deal with all the difficulties and obstacles that you are likely to meet in a domestic situation. Nibbling away at a tile will come second nature to you by the end of the course. Laying tiles flat and even to a wall is only part of the course. Grouting, polishing and finishing will show the overall quality of your achievements.
Once you've learned how to cope with wall tiling we'll then show you how to lay a top quality floor. Square, level and pleasing to the eye.
