      Hi darren, tracey, Matt the soldier here who did the 5 week course in Jan Feb this year, got to say again brilliant course enjoyed all of it, will be back to do the kitchen fitting later this year, seemed to have done more plastering than tiling so far but have a couple of tiling jobs coming up, so cant wait, get ready for loads of questions.

      Hi Darren, well just did my first job today ( bathroom wall ) half day job.
      Went well, although I did have to make the grout twice, first lot was like water, too much water in the bucket to start with. Doh !!
      Thank you for all your help during the course, tell Tracy I miss her tea LOL
      Take care

      HI Darren,
      Emails get bounced back from your plastering site so you to need sort it,ASAP-so hear goes.
      Does your 8/9 day plastering course cover any polished/venetian plastering as it appears to be the "in thing".Does the average student manage to achieve a quality standard by the end of the 8/9 day course.
      Finally,how about a "special price" for the 9 day plastering course,coupled with the 8 day tiling course,dropping the b'room course-when do you have available dates for both courses???
      Regards,viktor.

      Hi Darren,

      From what l gather you are a trainer at NETT??? Ive had a look at
      the site and you guys seem to have a great deal of success. Im
      just starting out, l want to one day be a great tiler ( At 28 l better
      get going ...hehehe) l don't know what it is about tiling, l just know
      that it seems right. Any more info on a course to suit or just general
      advice would be mucho appreciated...

      Hi Darren,i gut called Vinnie was looking for you...bluevin123

      Hi Darren and Tracy,

      Hope things are all well up there in the North East.

      Myself and Colin took your course in July 2007,and thought it was excellent.

      We had about 25 various tiling jobs last year and have learnt from each one.
      However you was right in saying working together, we wouldnt make much money.
      We hardly made a bean,but you live and learn.

      I made the desicion to go it alone, and done a Kitchen floor just before Xmas, and they and myself were well happy. Ive just priced a job In London to tile a 13.5m2 Consevatory floor..She seems happy with the price,but my only concern is how soon can I tile it?
      It was finished being built last week,and the floor itself is 100mm thick,that was layed last Tuesday..I have asked on the forums and they say roughly 1mm per day to dry out or it says in the Bal guide,upto 6 weeks...
      Another alternative is to use Bal green screed,which I could use straight away, but its three times more the price. Just wondering with your experience and knowledge what you would advise me to do, or if there is any tricks or tips I could apply ha!ha!.
      Thanks a bunch.
      Cheers Darren,
      Vinnie.

      hi darren, i remeber you saying there is a place near the training centre that sells nano light is that correct? and if so do you have a price? i need enough for coverage of 40msq..
      did you say nano is good to use on skimmed walls and ply floor? also what grout would you reccomend?
      is there anywhere you know of that i could get an account set up?
      once again many thanks james
