Courses Open To You After
Able Skills offers a wide variety of Tiling courses and packages and it really depends on the level to which you want to learn. After having done our Introductory and Advanced course, you may consider that you would like to learn tiling using Natural Stone which is available as a stand-alone course but is also included in the many packages which we have available here. We also have a City & Guilds Tiling Course, NVQ Level 2 and NVQ Level 3 Tiling options available.
All of our courses have been designed by our Tiling instructors, based on their industry experience – they know what people need to know in order to achieve a particular level of tiling skills.
During this 5 day tiling course, all tools and materials are supplied for your use.
This is a hands-on, practical tiling 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.

We are only a short walk from Dartford train station which is served by frequent trains taking 35 minutes from central London.
