Value for money


Although some training centres may quote cheaper prices for their courses than UK Pro Tiling Training, they can be at a DIY level and often stretch the training out over a long period of time drip feeding you information. This means that you have to keep going back for up to 6 weeks to get where you need to be, resulting in a far greater overall cost and a substantial loss of time.

The 5th day (Friday) on this course covers this

Part 1:  How to maximise an income from tiling

This course makes the difference between business success and failure. Just because you may be great at sticking tiles on doesn’t mean that you are going to make big money. There are plenty of tradesmen who do not maximise their income. This is because they don’t know how to properly advertise, build a customer base and more importantly know how to sell their tiling services effectively.

Not only is our professional tiling training taught to the highest level possible, this 1 day natural stone and business course is absolutely essential and is designed to make you ready to work. We will teach you how to succeed and make a lot of money from tiling. In addition, you will receive all of the necessary information you need to go self-employed.

Dealing with Natural Stones is different to ceramic tiling, and by the end of this course you will have a full understanding about how to fit all the natural stone tiles, marble, slate, granite, porcelain, travertine and terracotta etc. After all, natural stone installation is about 30% of a tilers work.
