With so much else having changed about all of our lives lately due to events outside of our control, it wouldn’t surprise us here at YTA if that vague wish you’ve long had to gain new skills or completely change career has become a firmer motivation to take those first steps.
If this describes you, you might have considered becoming a tiler, whether you have never learned a trade before, or you are already a tradesperson and simply wish to boost your prospects by expanding your wealth of skills.
Either way, signing up to one of our tiling courses – such as the five-day NOCN Cskills Level 1 unit Tiling Course – could be one of the wisest moves you make in 2020.
What’s included in this five-day course?
If you’re looking for a course that will give you a high level of tiling training in a short space of time so that you can get started with a career in this trade, this five-day Level 1 course should more than tick the boxes. In fact, you don’t need to have any prior tiling experience whatsoever – although if you do, we can adapt the course to your needs, to help you to get the most value from it.
In a nutshell, this course covers all of the key tiling essentials like the setting out of walls and floors, the preparation of surfaces, the actual tiling process, cutting around obstacles, and the correct use of adhesives and grouts to ensure you get the best results.
Know what this course is – and what it isn’t!
One thing important to note, though, is that as this is ‘only’ the five-day course, it is a unit accreditation certificate. This means that satisfying the criteria of the assessment will give you NOCN Cskills Level 1 unit accreditation in either wall tiling or floor tiling.
Such a unit accreditation certificate is great for showing potential customers or employers that you have reached a certain level of competence in tiling. It is not the same thing, however, as a full Level 1 qualification; for that, you will need to look to our 10-day course that would give you the opportunity to achieve a fully fledged NOCN Cskills Level 1 Certificate in Wall and Floor Tiling.
Nonetheless, our intensive five-day course can be an excellent start to anyone’s life as a tiler, providing a strong platform for a successful tiling career. Indeed, our most recent effectiveness poll found that 23 out of 30 former students were now self-employed tilers.
Our tiling courses here at YTA are renowned for how they allow people like you to embark on a new career as a tiler with a high level of both confidence and capability.
