Plastering Course Learner Review

The course was well structured and aimed at the right level for the complete novice. The time was just right and I gained a vast amount of hands on knowledge in just 5 days. I will definitely recommend this course – well planned.

We recommend our 10-day plastering course.

Due to demand for our 10 day plastering course we are not currently taking bookings for our 5-day course.  We can add your details to our reserve list and contact you should we have any cancellations. 

The main benefit of the 10-day course is that you get to fix plasterboards to solid/block walls and get to plaster more areas which gives you more time to practice, which will give you more confidence to complete plastering jobs away from our centre.
