More about us and our tiling courses.
Our tiling courses are ideal is you wish to learn to tile walls and floors using a range of tiles. Our courses have been designed by experienced and qualified tilers so that you gain the knowledge, skills and confidence to complete tiling jobs when you have left our centre.
We have recently improved the bays and layout of the course content after a review with course attendees. We have now made the bays open fronted and have added training boards that challenge you more when tiling. Plus our 10 day and complete tiling courses include tiling with mosaic tiles and natural stone tiles.
Our tiling courses are intensive but taught in a relaxed, friendly and professional manner by experienced tilers. Our tiling course tutors are approved by City & Guilds and CITB. We will fully support you when you finish your course so you will be confident using your new found skills. After completing any tiling training with us you are able to call into the centre or contact your tutor directly.
