- Learn both basic and advanced skills on our acclaimed 10-day Certificate in Bricklaying course
Have you been let go from your previous role and fancy a change in career to become a bricklayer, or are you simply looking to acquire the capability to undertake home DIY projects such as the construction of a BBQ, garden wall or garage?
Whatever your exact needs – from beginner to advanced – our NOCN Cskills Level 1 Certificate in Bricklaying course could take you a long way in the space of just 10 days.
Become a skilled bricklayer, and gain a trusted qualification to boot
As the name of the course indicates, our Level 1 Certificate in Bricklaying course gives you a full qualification on completion, subject to you passing five Cskills assessments.
This programme effectively combines a five-day intensive bricklaying course with a subsequent five-day advanced bricklaying course. The latter incorporates NOCN Cskills Level 1 assessments across five units covering health and safety in construction trades, effective communication in construction trades, building a brick wall, building a block wall and building a cavity wall.
Cskills Awards, by the way, is the current awarding body for construction NVQs, and is now part of NOCN Group, having previously been owned by the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB). Both Cskills Awards and NOCN are among the most instantly recognisable brands in the UK construction sector, so you won’t have to worry about the reputability of your qualification.
Covering vast ground, at dates and times to suit you
While you will certainly learn a lot on our 10-day Certificate in Bricklaying course – including the likes of trowel skills, how to build brick, block and cavity walls and even about such specialised subjects as different brickwork bonds and lintel installation – we also realise here at YTA that flexibility may be just as important to you in any training route you take.
That’s why you may well greatly appreciate the option that we give you to split the course into two separate weeks in accordance with your needs, and at no extra cost. So, whether you really need a course that you can fit around other personal or professional commitments, or you would simply appreciate a breather halfway through the course, we can bring you the perfect package.

- Our tiling intensive courses give you a quick, but thorough route to a rewarding career
So, you’re sure that you have what it takes to become a tiler, and that you would find it a highly satisfying profession. But you don’t necessarily have that much time to undertake a programme of training, and would ideally like to find tiling intensive courses that enable you to cover a huge amount of ground and be ready for your new tiling career within just a few days.
Well in that case, you may be interested in our five-day intensive wall and floor tiling course here at YTA. Indeed, you don’t need to have any prior experience in tiling at all to enrol on this course. Then, once you’ve completed the course, you’ll be ready to start making a success out of your career.
We don’t merely claim this, by the way – we have the statistics to prove it. We conducted an effectiveness poll recently that showed 23 out of 30 students have set up and are now pursuing careers as self-employed tilers. That’s an astounding rate of success, given the shortness and great value for money of our course.
What’s covered in this course?
The whole point of tiling intensive courses is to drill down to the specifics within a brief space of time, and our own five-day course definitely does that.
Our course is constructed, in fact, so that it feels like a tiler’s working week. So on Monday, for instance, students focus on the health and safety basics and then get to learn how to prepare surfaces. Tuesday is focused on polishing off the previous day’s work and completing a tiled kitchen, while on Wednesday, you will get to grips with marking and cutting tiles around bathroom obstacles like basin pedestals, door architrave profiles and toilet waste pipes.
Looking to Thursday and Friday, you will be able to complete the bathroom tiling process, covering such tasks as drilling holes in tiles, full measuring and quoting, and the preparation, setting out and tiling of a bathroom floor.

- 5 star reviews just keep coming in for YTA
5 star reviews for YTA just keep coming in! We absolutely love reading your reviews following the courses, please keep sending them in to us. Below we have 2 lovely reviews from recent students after completing a few courses with us.
Mark Readymartcher – completed 10 day plumbing course and 5 day kitchen fitting course = 5 star review!
If you are a property developer or looking for a new skill this place is 5 stars. I searched the UK for somewhere that could do courses to help me with my property developing and found YTA. I looked at the reviews on here and FB and took the leap…so glad I did!! I’m 45 and having previously worked in offices and no real experience with plumbing or kitchen fitting both these courses were great! The tutors are all time served professionals, friendly, down to earth and you can tell they really enjoy teaching the trade. The 10 day plumbing course has given my a level of confidence to tackle fitting a bathroom suite, fit and fix radiators and plumb a kitchen. I know how to fix and bend pipes using different methods, understand how a heating system works for both heating and water supply’s, and how waste pipes work all the way to the drains. The 5 day kitchen fitting course was insightful and I feel confident to fit the basic kitchen units correctly. I now know how to use a router correctly and cut worktops to fit using male and female joints, and cut out the cooker and sink areas. You also get advice and tips on how to overcome obstacles. I can’t thank these guys enough and having booked 3 weeks worth of courses I got a free week to choose an additional course. I will be back there very soon
Anonymous – 1 day plumbing course = 5 star review!
Did the 1 day plumbing taster as I’d never done plumbing before and wanted to know how to fix leaks and tackle basic problems around the house without calling and paying for a plumber. The guys at YTA were very friendly and got us working with materials straight away. Lyndon was a great and patient instructor throughout and made sure to tailor the exercises to ensure they were relevant to what I wanted and that I got the most out of my day with them. Would definitely recommend for anyone wanting to improve their DIY skills.
At YTA we are very proud of the hundreds of consistent excellent reviews we receive every month from all our courses. If you are looking for a reputable construction training centre to deliver a variety of trades from plumbing courses to plastering courses then you will not be disappointed with YTA. Why not pop in for a brew and we can show you how we do things and have a chat about a suitable course for yourself!

- 10 day level 1 plumbing course review
A lovely review from Mark who is still undergoing courses at the centre this week.
Just completed a 10 day Level 1 Plumbing course. So glad I decided to go to YTA. Lyndon was a great tutor and can’t thank him enough. If you want to learn plumbing then this is the place to go. There is a very friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Already looking forward to the Kitchen Fitting next week and because I booked 3 weeks of courses I have a 1 week course for free!!. Thank you all at YTA
The plumbing courses run every week at YTA with no more than 6 students per course. All courses are taught in a friendly relaxed atmosphere. To book a course we require a deposit that can be placed over the phone by calling the office on 01274682199.

- Don’t look elsewhere for an intensive plumbing course in the UK
We take great pride here at YTA in offering a broad assortment of highly rated, in-depth and competitively priced construction training programmes. Certainly, if you are interested in becoming a plumber, there is many a relevant course that you can undertake at our accredited training centre, including various intensive routes over five or 10 days.
What are your options if you would like to undertake an intensive plumbing programme?
When it comes to investigating the possibilities for an intensive plumbing course in the UK, we don’t think you could choose a much finer starting point than our five-day intensive course. This programme is highly practical in nature to equip you with all of the knowledge and understanding that you need to confidently undertake plumbing jobs in the home or even become a professional plumber for the first time.
You don’t need to have any prior plumbing experience at all to enrol on our five-day course, although many of our students on this programme are tradespersons in other fields, such as tiling, plastering or joinery. By learning how to perform such common plumbing tasks as changing taps, fitting radiators or even replacing an entire bathroom, you can give your prospective customers the attraction of a more comprehensive set of services from a single trusted person.
For a higher price, we can also give you the benefit of a five-day intensive plumbing course in the UK that comes with a nationally recognised qualification, the Level 1 Award in Preparation for Plumbing Operations. This route involves the student being trained and assessed on two units: an introduction to plumbing work and carrying out plumbing operations.
Don’t forget that you can join us for a full 10 days, too
Combining the aforementioned five-day Level 1 intensive plumbing course with our five-day advanced plumbing course, the 10-day Level 1 intensive plumbing course can also lead to a Level 1 Award in Preparation for Plumbing Operations. However, it should be emphasised that the qualification is optional, with the training being the same irrespective of whether you opt for the award.
Our advanced plumbing course can also be taken on its own and takes you through the complete fitting of a domestic hot water storage system, as well as the fitting of a full bathroom suite, including a thermostatic mixer shower. The likes of rainwater guttering, hoppers and drainage are also covered within this course.
Would you like to discuss precisely what you require from an intensive plumbing course in the UK with our team here at YTA, before committing to any of our training routes? If so, you’re welcome to give us a call on 01274 682199 or 07400 922788; alternatively, feel free to send us an email enquiry.
