As the UK economy continues its steady comeback from the lows of the coronavirus crisis, it’s fair to say that key construction skills like plastering will hardly become less important any time soon.
This helps explain our own wide range of highly regarded intensive plastering courses in the UK, including both five-day and 10-day options for those interested in working towards an NVQ Level 1 qualification.
What’s the big difference between our Level 1 five-day and 10-day courses?
While it’s far from the only qualification that aspiring plasterers might look to acquire, the NOCN Cskills Level 1 Certificate in Plastering can provide a very strong foundation for subsequent success in this in-demand field.
You might have some experience in another trade, and wish to enhance your skill-set by taking on a course centred on plastering. Or maybe you’re a complete beginner? Regardless, taking on a five-day or 10-day Level 1 NVQ course at YTA’s West Yorkshire training centre could be one of the wisest decisions you ever make for your career.
The five-day course is effectively the first week of the 10-day course, and is priced accordingly. Completing and passing the five-day course will give you a NOCN Cskills Level 1 Plastering Walls unit accreditation. If, then, you would like to gain the full Level 1 Certificate in Plastering in one go, it’s the 10-day course that you will need to enrol on.
Put yourself to the test – and bolster your capability and employability
Whichever course of these two you commit to, we will give you a set of plastering tools to use during the course, and your own full-size plastering training bay to learn your craft in. Plus, with only five plastering training bays being used, you can be sure of benefitting from the high level of tuition and attention made possible by a low student-to-teacher ratio.
Students of our five-day course will have plenty of opportunity to learn the basic technique of plastering, in addition to over-skimming and repairing plastering. They will also get to grips with feathering in and board fixing.
These elements will also be covered if you enrol on our full 10-day course, but in the second week, you’ll also get to tackle the plastering of a full wall and ceilings as a complete project. We’ll also teach you more advanced techniques, including the plastering of arches and curves. In addition, as one of our students, you’ll learn how to work with the increasingly popular K-Rend onto block work.
You’ll cover an awful lot of ground on one of our intensive plastering courses in the UK – such vital subjects as health and safety, and starting up in business also being covered – and when you come out of it, you’ll possess a clear practical and theoretical understanding of plastering.
If, then, you want to put a platform in place for sustained success as a plasterer, you’ll struggle to find a better one than one of these Level 1 courses!
