2 Weeks Wall & Floor Tiling

About the course

This ceramic wall and floor tiling course will provide you with the skills and knowledge necessary to take on tiling jobs. Background preparation, application appreciation, natural stone, tanking systems, setting out and a great deal more are covered in this course giving you a solid foundation to build upon.
You will begin with the basics and gradually progress through more difficult tasks, from tiling around a window, including reveals and trims, to setting out and tiling a floor including cutting around a toilet and pedestal. You will complete this course with the confidence and knowledge to undertake smaller jobs, progressing onto larger jobs as you gain experience.

You will learn in your own training bay with one-to-one tuition and lots of hands-on practical experience. You will also learn in a realistic environment using a range of tools and materials.
