You might not have thought that within just one or two work weeks, you could go from being a complete newcomer to the world of tiling, to someone with sufficient skills, information and confidence to actually begin tiling professionally. Yet, this is precisely what the five-day tiling intensive courses that we are presently offering here at YTA can make possible for you.
We run two five-day courses, in fact – the Intensive Wall and Floor Tiling Course and the Non-Accredited Advanced Tiling Course – that can be taken separately one after the other, or as a whole when you enrol on our 10-day Intensive ‘Ready for Anything’ Tiling Course.
Barely a week needed to become a capable tiler
Let’s start from the (very) beginning, with our 5-day Intensive Wall and Floor Tiling Course. This is the perfect route to take to a professional tiling career if you have never previously done tiling, but it’s also suitable for enthusiastic DIYers and other tradespeople who wish to become tilers.
Regardless, you can expect to cover a serious amount of territory over the five days of this course, starting on Monday with health and safety, followed by the preparation of surfaces and the cutting of tiles with a tile cutter, moving onto tiling a kitchen and grouting before the end of the day.
The course then continues on Tuesday with the polishing off of the previous day’s work and silicone sealing to complete the tiled kitchen. Students of the course will then set out and tile to and around windows, in addition to tiling down to the floor on a large area.
Over the final three days of the course, you will learn such tasks as marking and cutting tiles around obstacles, tiling a bathroom, drilling holes in tiles, full measuring and quoting, and preparing, setting out and tiling the bathroom floor.
But there’s so much more that you can train in…
As aforementioned, the above is merely a summary of what our beginners’ five-day intensive tiling course will teach you. It is just one of our tiling intensive courses, with the second five-day course encompassing such aspects as tiling with diamond inserts, wet rooms, tanking, plunge cutting and naturals, including cutting and sealing.
Finally, of course, there is our 10-day course that brings together both of these weeks.
