The Builder Training Centre (The BTC) offers high quality structured Roof Tiling Courses, which can be attended as a 4 day course during the week, usually Monday to Thursday. 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. 

You will be learning how to tile a roof from day one and you will be amazed at what you can learn within a short period of time.  Please take time to view a selection of our testimonials from students that have attended the Roof Tiling Course by clicking here

You will get dirty so you should bring working clothes. We have changing room facilities for men and women!  You will find our prices are competitive, and include the use of tools and materials for your Roof Tiling Course whilst you are here, but for health and safety reasons you are required to have steel toe capped footwear to wear throughout the course.  These can be purchased from reception on your first morning for £20 if required.

Full instruction will be provided in the use of tools, and a wide selection of tools will be available for purchase from reception at any time during or after your course.

This basic hands-on practical course will enable you to learn the many aspects of roof tiling. You will be working on a specially designed mock-up roof at ground level with a dormer window and a velux window.

You will learn techniques on how to carry out repairs on an existing roof. By the end of this course we believe that you will be more than satisfied with the skills learnt and have a good understanding of the techniques required to be able to tile or repair a roof.   


The roofing skills learnt on this course can be a very cost effective way of learning to overhaul a roof, often avoiding costly replacement!


Tasks will include:

  • Fixing membrane to a roof
  • Cutting, spacing and fitting battens
  • Tiling a roof using plain tiles, interlocking tiles and slate
  • Pointing a gable end using undercloak
  • Fitting bonnets on the hip
  • Fitting a velux window with flashing kit and slate around it
  • Learn the skill of lead work:
    • Fitting a lead valley around a dormer window
    • Dressing and fitting a lead front apron
    • Straight cut and step flashings


Fact sheets will be supplied on our roof tiling Course, so there is no need for too many notes!
