Kitchen Fitting Course




2 days




The Builder Training Centre (The BTC) offers high quality structured Kitchen Fitting Courses, which can be attended either as a 2 day weekday course, or weekend course (Saturday and Sunday).

Our instructors are qualified, highly experienced, knowledgeable and enthusiastic Tradespersons, so students can take advantage of all the tips of the trade, personal experiences and advice they offer.

This short course is intensive, but the atmosphere is relaxed and enjoyable which creates a good learning environment. If you have a particular project in mind, or some building plans you wish to gain advice on, our instructors will be more than happy to discuss these with you.

The Kitchen Fitting Course, held over two days on weekdays or weekends, aims to teach you how to install your kitchen to achieve a professional finish. Regardless of your previous experience or carpentry skills, this course covers all aspects of kitchen fitting.

Steel toe-capped safety footwear is a health and safety requirement for all our courses. We stock steel-toe capped boots from size 3 to 13 (with some half sizes), which can be purchased on the first morning of your course for just £20.00. You should wear suitable comfortable clothing that you do not mind getting dirty.

We provide all relevant tools and materials that are required for the duration of your course.

Changing facilities for men and women are available on-site. For a £5.00 deposit you can get a padlock to a locker for any small valuables you may wish to bring along.

You are welcome to bring your own food to eat in our canteen. Alternatively, we sell a small selection of hot and cold drinks and snacks, or you could purchase food from one of the local supermarkets/shops/cafes/restaurants within just a few minutes’ walk.

Provided you are aged at least 18 years and deemed fit and healthy to complete physical work, this course is suitable for you. Whether your background is already in a trade or something completely different, these skills can be learnt and applied directly after the course.

Over the years, we have had students attend the course for many reasons, the most popular of which would be to expand their current professional services, start a whole new career or to just pick up a new skill for DIY. These are not just skills for one project, these are skills for life!

The Kitchen Fitting course can be attended either over 2 consecutive weekdays or over a weekend (Saturday & Sunday). The content of the course is the same and it will follow the same structure.  However, please note that the weekend courses start at 8.30 am instead of 9 am to maintain consistency with our other weekend courses.

You will be awarded a Builder Training Centres Limited Certificate of Continuous Professional Development after full completion of the course. The Certificate will include your name, the dates you attended, and on the reverse we list all the areas you have covered throughout your course.

Course notes will be provided during your course. These will summarise most of the topics covered with some diagrams and pictures also included, however, you may choose to bring along a notepad and pen to take additional notes.

As we are located within Waddon Train Station Buildings, we do not have any parking on-site. That said, there are plenty of residential roads in the surrounding area that have free unrestricted parking, within just a few minutes’ walk. If attending on Sunday, you can park in the marked red boxes in Epsom Road where our Centre at Waddon Station is situated and in Stafford Road where our Electrical Centre is situated (a minute’s walk away) all day free of charge.

Please email if you would like any further information or instructions.
