£625 including vat
An intensive hands on 4 day weekend plastering course split up over two consecutive weekends (Saturday & Sunday – 9am to 4pm) The course is suitable for complete beginners or for all tradespersons looking to add more skills.
Come and learn to plaster in our big plastering training bays! No more than 5 plastering students per instructor and a BIG plastering training bay so you will gain all the skills needed to tackle a large project.
No previous experience is needed.
This is a 4 day intensive plastering course providing a wealth of background information. A course suitable for beginners, tradespersons, even enthusiastic DIY’ers wanting to learn to plaster. This 4 day plastering course is very similar to our 5 day plastering course but includes no boarding up. We also offer a 10 day plastering course and 10 day level 1 plastering course
You will be given a set of plastering tools to use during the course. You will work in your own full size plastering training bay which is bigger than most small bedrooms or bathrooms (2.4m in length and full room height at 2.4m). You will not share your bay! We only have 5 plastering training bays to ensure you are taught to the highest standard with a low student to teacher / trainer ratio. The room is filled with various scenarios – stud wall, block wall, pre-skimmed wall, a window, a block wall corner and everyone’s favourite – a decent size ceiling!
You will more than likely get messy – yes we would advise you to bring a change of clothes or a decorators over suit because once you start plastering a ceiling for the first time it can be messy. Once you have an hour or so under your belt and start to learn the technique you will start to get more on the ceiling than our floor.
Plastering walls will be next and this is when your arm will appreciate our nice big plastering training bays! 2,4m high and 2,4m long plus a window to trim up too.
You will cover overs-skimming over previous work and repair plastering. The repair plastering requires you to bash a few holes in your work and is sometimes hard for you to accept but you will soon get over it. Feathering in (technique used on larger walls) will also be covered. Board fixing (dot and dab) will be used to board and plaster the block wall.
Making use of the large training bays to perfect your plastering technique and build your confidence ready to take on a variety of work once you have completed the course.
By the end of the 4 days weekend plastering course we aim for you to be confident to take on most plastering jobs.
