Plastering Courses

Plastering is an essential and ancient skill, practised by tradespeople all around the world for centuries. The earliest known plasterers lived around 7,500BC; they may have used slightly different materials in slightly different circumstances, but the spirit and skill of the vocation remains to this day

Not only is an unplastered wall unsightly, plastering is also essential for a wall’s durability and condition. Plastering is a very in-demand skill here in Britain, and a large, skilled workforce is needed to ensure that everyone’s walls remain plastered.

Here at Access Training, we deliver plastering courses to help provide the country with its next generation of plasterers. Plasterers are an essential part of the UK construction industry, and if you want to become a plasterer and earn money while working as your own boss, an Access plastering training course is the perfect starting point.
