Who is this course for?

No experience is required to enrol on our basic tiling course – in fact, most of the candidates who do so have never attempted any tiling work whatsoever. The Tiling Essentials course is particularly ideal for those who wish to complete domestic tiling jobs in their own homes or with a view to becoming a professional tradesperson.

Access Training courses are open to all, regardless of age, gender and nationality. Present location is no obstacle, either – our students come from all over the UK and beyond, and our training centres are easy to reach from practically anywhere.

What will I receive upon completion?

Upon successful completion of the essential tiling course, you will be rewarded with an Access Training-accredited certificate to confirm that you attended and completed this training programme. You may also choose to sit an optional examination covering everything you’ve learned on the course.
