Plastering

Get skilled in a trade on our plastering course. This is a vital career, requiring precision and an eye for detail. From the first day you will develop the fundamentals of an in-demand job. Along the way you will learn about surface preparation, safe working practices, plastering materials and technical skills needed to do internal and external plastering as well as dry lining and floor screeding.
