Brian Higgins, (Fife)
(tiling course and advanced tiling course, plastering course, advanced plastering course, roof tiling course, roof construction course, kitchen fitting course, carpentry course, plumbing course, bricklaying course)
I’ve learned a lot more than I had expected to on a 5 day course, by doing it rather than just being shown or talking about it.
Christopher Kenward, (Middlesex)
Very impressed with the information I have gained over the 5 days. It’s a very interesting place to learn skills – far better than attending a college.

Mary Jones, (London) – Advanced Tiling
I was apprehensive about attending the advanced course. However, it reiterated everything I had learnt on the foundation course. Shaun was excellent as usual. I would highly recommend that everyone on the foundation attends the advanced as it is the “Icing on the cake”. Many Thanks.
Graham Snarey, (Berkshire)
Course was ideal for me and covered practically everything I wanted to learn. The centre seemed very professional and I liked the set up. Having your own bay to work in was good. Also liked the fact that it was all practical work as opposed to sitting down note taking on subjects, as was the case at a training centre more local to me. Tutor was also very knowledgeable and patient.
Helene Netland, (Middlesex)
Friendly and helpful staff at the centre. Convenient with seating area close to work area. Instructor very knowledgeable and keen to pass on advice and helpful hints. I have learnt a lot on this course and feel ready to take on a couple of tiling projects at home.
David Pascoe, (Surrey)
I’ve already attended the kitchen fitting so I was aware of the centre. It is very well organised. The course has been excellent and I can now do something that I could not do before. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole thing. The course was very informative, well structured and very well explained. Shaun was an excellent teacher and explained things fully.
Jonathan Veness, (Surrey)
