There are many good reasons to consider taking on an advanced tiling course in the UK. One of those is naturally the strong appeal of tiling as a career, whether you are an existing tradesperson who would like to add tiling to your skill-set, or a complete newcomer to learning a trade. Nor can one entirely ignore the financial rewards, with experienced tilers potentially earning as much as £32,000 a year.
But if this is the professional path that you would like to embark on, what training options should you look at? One possibility we would suggest you seriously consider, is a 10-day Level 1 course that would allow you to achieve a full qualification for showing to future customers or employers.
Sure enough, here at YTA, we offer the 10-day NOCN Cskills Level 1 Certificate in Tiling course. Those signing up for this course will undertake four Cskills assessments as they learn all about tiling, with the opportunity to earn the NOCN Cskills Level 1 Certificate in Wall and Floor Tiling.
You’ll learn a serious amount about tiling in just two weeks
This 10-day course effectively consists of our five-day intensive tiling course, followed by our five-day advanced tiling course in the UK.
Training in tiling via this particular course, however, will enable you to be trained and assessed in no fewer than four Cskills units, in relation to health and safety in construction trades, communicating effectively in construction trades, wall tiling and floor tiling.
As for the course content itself, you’ll start on Monday by learning about health and safety, before we proceed to train you in the preparation of surfaces and setting out the tiling of kitchens. You’ll then be taught how to cut the tiles with a tile cutter and a tile wet cutter, set out for the feature, and tile the kitchen. Grouting will also be covered, before the first day of the course is even over!
Over the rest of the first week, you’ll receive our renowned hands-on tuition in such tasks as silicone sealing, tiling around windows, marking and cutting tiles around obstacles such as basin pedestals and toilet waste pipes, and drilling holes in tiles. You’ll also get to grips with how to measure and quote for customers, and the preparation, setting out and tiling of a bathroom floor.
Even with all of that taught in the first week, there will be much more to come in the second week. This will be when you build your skills in such more advanced processes as tiling with diamond inserts, tiling around a window inside and out, tanking, plunge cutting, diamond drilling around waste and supply pipes, and installing under-floor heating before tiling on top of it.
There’s much more to be educated on when you take on this complete tiling course!
Your learning on this 10-day advanced tiling course in the UK won’t stop with all of the above. That’s because every YTA course also includes various other content, including useful ‘tricks of the trade’, advice on how to market yourself as a tiler, information on business start-up, business cards, tax, CSCS cards, and a lot more.
