There are 3 parts to this 1 day course
Part 1: Expert Business Information
This course makes the difference between business success and failure. Just because you may be great at sticking tiles on doesn’t mean that you are going to make big money. There are plenty of tradesmen who do not maximise their income. This is because they don’t know how to properly advertise, build a customer base and more importantly know how to sell their tiling services effectively.
Not only is our professional tiling training taught to the highest level possible, this 1 day natural stone and business course is absolutely essential and is designed to make you ready to work. We will teach you how to succeed and make a lot of money from tiling. In addition, you will receive all of the necessary information you need to go self-employed.

Part 2: Natural Stone Tiling
Dealing with Natural Stones is different to ceramic tiling, and by the end of this course you will have a full understanding about how to fit all the natural stone tiles, marble, slate, granite, porcelain, travertine and terracotta etc. After all, natural stone installation is about 30% of a tilers work.
You’ll also learn how to drill holes in natural stone, fit them and cut this type of tile with diamond-tipped cutting tools. You will additionally gain an understanding of all the appropriate sealers that go with these tiles.
Part 3: Difficult Tiling Situations
Also included on this 1 day course, we will also teach you about wet rooms and tanking systems, learn about cement backer boards, which are more stable than plywood overlays and levelling floors.
This extra day also covers a lot of situations that you will find outside of a training centre which can cause problems if you don’t know how to deal with them: Underfloor heating, anti-crack mats, 3 way external mitring, decoupling membranes, movement joints, herringbone, diamond and multi-room patterns, porcelain testing, trade accounts etc. This course is, therefore, about preparing you for the real world of customer tiling.
Course manual Included
You will also receive an additional extensive information hand out to take away with you, that covers all these challenging situations and how to deal with them professionally and a back of the huge amount of information covered on this course.
Ultimately, you will definitely not regret adding this 1-day natural stone business course on to your 4-day fast-track experience.
