Now, let’s take a look at what each week of the course comprises.
- Week 1
The first week of the course effectively takes the form of a five-day tiling course, and is organised as follows:
Monday focuses on health and safety, before paying close attention to the preparation of surfaces and the setting-out of kitchen tiling. Tuesday will be about polishing off the previous day’s work, and using silicone heating to complete a tiled kitchen. Students will then look at tiling to and around windows.
Wednesday will see Tuesday’s work completed, before students will have the chance to learn about tile adhesives and grouts for a variety of situations. We will also be explaining tiling tools and tiling tool kits to you at this stage.
Over the course of Wednesday and Thursday, you will learn about tiling a bathroom, which leaves Friday as the day when you will prepare, set out and tile the bathroom floor.
- Week 2
The second week will begin with the tiling of a kitchen, but with a diamond splashback going up to a funnel. Further content during this week will cover windows, wet rooms, and bathrooms.
You will finish this week tiling a bathroom floor, and learning about installing underfloor heating before tiling on it. Any final questions will also be asked, and certificates presented.
In addition, during this course as a whole, students will find out about such things as marketing a tiling business, insurance, tax, CSCS cards, and more. It will all help equip you to make a success out of your subsequent tiling career.
Of all the tiling courses on the market, this course is an excellent one for ensuring you have the skills and qualifications that you will need in order to take your tiling skills to the next level, and to transform a useful skill set into a fully-fledged business.
