Course details

The course will provide you with hands-on training during which time you will be assessed by our qualified plastering assessors. The entire City & Guilds process is completed here on site at Able Skills which ensures this course is delivered using the correct procedures and without delay.

You will be trained and assessed across the following areas:

  • Introduction to Health and Safety
  • Introduction to the construction industry
  • Preparing background surfaces and applying render coats
  • Preparing background surfaces and applying finishing coats

This is an intensive 4 weeks of hands on training, during which time you will build a portfolio of your work. You will be assessed on a variety of units as detailed above.

If you are still unsure if plastering is the career of your choice, why not try our 5 day Introductory Plastering course first. This will help you decide if you want to progress to a qualification and a career in Plastering.

This is a hands-on, practical plastering course and you will be involved at every stage and will be participating throughout. It is therefore recommended you bring suitable clothing and for your own safety, steel capped footwear is essential.
