Tiling Training

Not only is our tiling training taught to the highest level possible, our tiling courses are designed in order to make you ready to work. We will teach you the tricks of the tiling trade and you will, no doubt, become an expert tiler. In addition, you will receive all of the necessary information you need to setup a tiling business and go self-employed.

If you are thinking of starting a tiling business, then the 1-day natural stone and business start-up course is an essential, and additional, 1-day course that follows on from our 4-day fast track tiling courses.

Our 1-day natural stone and business start-up course is a must if you want to put yourself ahead of the average ceramic tiler, and widen your knowledge of the tiling world. The course ultimately includes all the business start-up advice required for the tiling industry.

Business Start up

During the one-day course, we will provide you with all the business start-up advice you need as a tiler, from keeping your accounts, finding work and selling your service to your customers. We also cover how to run a tiling business, along with how to deal with natural stone tile, as well as other difficult tiling situations that commonly arise.

Natural Stone

By the end of the course, you will have a full understanding of all the natural stone tiles, marble, slate, granite, porcelain, travertine and terracotta etc. After all, natural stone installation is only about 30% of a tiler’s work.

You will also gain an understanding of wet rooms and tanking systems, and learn about cement backer boards, which are more stable than plywood overlays and levelling floors. You’ll also learn how to drill holes in natural stone, fit them and cut this type of tile with diamond-tipped cutting tools. You will additionally gain an understanding of all the appropriate sealers that go with these tiles.

Real life situations

This extra day also covers a lot of situations that you will find outside of a training centre which can cause problems if you don’t know how to deal with them. Our day course is, therefore, about preparing you for the real world of customer tiling,

Reading material

You will also receive an additional extensive manual to take away with you, that covers all these challenging situations and how to deal with them professionally.

Ultimately, you won’t regret adding this day course on to your 4 day fast-track experience.
