Very professional. A perfect introduction for someone with absolutely no experience. Nobody is left behind. Elaine (my instructor) is a credit to The BTC.

Anousha Misthry, (London)

Absolutely loved the course. I never felt intimidated or judged as I think some women might have that idea before coming. Everyone is so lovely, friendly and professional. Neal was brilliant and helped me so much. I learnt loads! Thank you.

Phillip Evans, (London)

The course was brilliant and Neal so patient as a teacher. I honestly didn’t think I’d leave here being able to do nearly as much as I can now. Top marks to Neal!

Richard Taylor, (London)

Great. I attended 15 years ago and used the plastering skills for a good few years. Having lost confidence I decided to return for a refresher, which has proved very worthwhile – lots of great, really useful skills, tips and tricks.

Salah Boulaam, (London)

When I started the course I knew nothing about plastering. What I achieved in the 4 days intensive course was amazing.

Brian Rowan, (London)

I had a great time. I have been in the building industry most of my life and feel I learned a hell of a lot in a short period of time. Justin is an ace trainer – thanks for a great week.

Tim Fairlie, (Gloucestershire)

Very convenient location to get to. Well thought out work space. Useful that tutor asked what each student wanted to achieve at the start of the course and was asked to tailor the examples to our specific requirements.

Dom Huddart, (Surrey)

Good centre, plenty of space and equipment. Good knowledge from instructor.

Matthew Prior, (Hampshire)

Neal is truly an encyclopedia of plastering knowledge. He made me feel totally welcome, explained every step of every task clearly, and perhaps most importantly, has made me feel confident enough to do the plastering I need to around my own home. This course has been worth every penny.

Mike Wells, (London)

I’ve been looking for something like this for years and I’m delighted with the course. It was excellent and i’ll be back for more soon.

It was excellent – I feel confident that I can undertake plastering projects in my home now. It was useful but also great fun! Everyone was lovely.

Very impressed with every aspect of the course and staff. Great atmosphere and brilliant tuition. Justin is a top tutor and person.

Simon Hamilton Ritchie, (London)

After home maintenance, I got a discount on 4 courses – plumbing, tiling, carpentry and plastering. All the courses had a great instructor and packed in a lot over the 2 weekends, but still allowed plenty of time for asking questions on home projects as well as the tasks that we were doing. I would highly recommend attending the centre.

Chris Jones, (Hertfordshire)

All excellent. Perfect balance of instruction and practical demonstrations from Justin.

Mark Palmer, (London)

As always, welcoming and inclusive. The course was informative and well planned. Justin was extremely cheerful, an expert and patient. Excellent instructor.

Josh de Ath, (East Sussex)

Good course and facility, hands on experience and a nice pace to the course. Felt like we learned a lot in the 4 days, but also got a chance to spend a lot of time getting valuable hands-on experience with different aspects of plastering. Neal was very helpful and knowledgeable.

Sam. the instructor, made sure he covered everything over and over. He answered everybody’s questions and he was always helping when anyone got stuck. It has been a fantastic and pleasurable experience with a good finish. To cram years of experience in 5 days is no easy task. Sam did it well.

Absolutely fantastic – couldn’t fault it.  Thanks to Sam & office staff for all extra help to make my participation whilst pregnant possible.  Should be able to make decent stab at baby’s room now.  Ta much!

Particularly impressed with the care Sally & others took to prepare detailed ‘risk assessment’ for my participation on course when advised of my pregnancy (20 weeks).  Even allowed close parking, so if I needed quick get-away, I could.  At most I expected to simply sign statement saying I took course at own risk.  Thank so much – exceeded expectations.
