The course you should choose is heavily dependant on your previous knowledge and ability in the trade... If you absolutely have no previous knowledge and you have never even attempted tiling, then instead of jumping head first into a full on course maybe start with an Introduction to Tiling Course. This is great because we provide all the tiles and tools you will need as well as a work station and the expertise of our two instructors. An absolute great taster of the trade overall!

Already a professional tiler?


If you are already a professional tiler or you have completed your Level 2 Tiling Diploma Course the next step would be achieving an NVQ! There are two routes in terms of the tiling courses we offer regarding NVQ. Firstly if you have been working in the industry as a tiller for more than 5 years and you can show evidence of this you can take the EWPA route, EWPA or Experienced Worker Practical Assesment is a fast track route, meaning you can be assessed here at Able Skills. 

However, if you have not been working out in the industry for 5-years then you will need to be assessed on-site. Yes! This means that you will have to be in employment...Once employed we will send a trusted Able Skills assessor to your place of work and he will carry out a competency test, to judge if you have the knowledge and ability to be successful in an NVQ!
