Course details

This 5 day tiling course has been recognised by City & Guilds as a comprehensive introduction to tiling so upon successful completion of this course you will receive an Able Skills certificate assured by City & Guilds to confirm the skills that you will have learned.

During this 5 day Tiling course you will cover aspects such as:

  • Preparing your area
  • Setting out
  • Cutting and laying tiles and
  • Finishing (grouting and cleaning)

We will teach you all about the different adhesives and tiles available and we will explain all of the tools used to complete a tiling installation.

You will learn floor and wall tiling including how to tile around windows and reveals, socketed areas and splash-backs.

You will learn by way of practical demonstration and application, under supervision of experienced Tiling instructors. This course is entirely hands-on and you will be tiling within minutes of arriving on the course.

All tools and materials will be supplied for you during the course and if after having spent a week with us tiling on this course you decide to upgrade to achieve one of the above listed recognised tiling qualifications, we will adjust your training time and fees to accommodate for the 5 day tiling course you have completed.

This course can be quite a messy course so please bring suitable clothing and for your own safety, steel capped footwear is essential.
