However, we understand that as an adult learner, training for so many weeks straight isn’t always easy. Therefore, our flexible learning options are extremely popular. The time of plastering training can be split up into separate weeks to suit your diary. Alternatively, we also offer this course at weekends. When training at weekends we operate on a two weekends on, two weekends off basis.

However, not everyone is here to get the skills to just work on domestic properties. Some people come to our centre with the goal of working on-site as a qualified Plasterer. However, to be able to work on-site you will need to have a CSCS Skilled workers card. You can only get one of these once you have achieved an NVQ. We over the perfect NVQ course that will get you to where you need to be, and this is the NVQ Level 2 Plastering Course.

This course involves eight weeks of practical and assessments and then to finalise the NVQ you will need to have two assessments on-site carried out by our NVQ assessors.
