Luckily for you, our instructors are experts in the skills and will do their best to give you a great start. Whether you are looking to get a taste of the trade with our Introduction to Plastering course or you aim to kick-start a career with our Level 2 Plastering Diploma we have got a range of training courses to suit your needs.


The Level 2 Plastering Diploma is a 10-week complete package that is aimed at those looking to pursue a career in the trade. Of course, this course will be mostly practical, getting stuck in with practical learning straight from the offset. The course will teach you everything you need to know from the more basic aspects all the way to more advanced skills within the trade. We aim to give you a great insight into how the industry works, how to make that initial start and the skill itself. The course will cover the following topics:
