1. Tile Adhesive Poll - Which brand did you use most in 2016?

    Okay, so the poll we had running had been skewed a fair bit, so I've reset it, and we'll need your votes again. Genuine votes only please. No companies are allowed to vote that sell adhesive. And if you've registered to the forum just to vote, think again, you'll be banned and the adhesive brand called out for cheating.

    Hi guys

    Just signed up to the forum, 22 year old really looking to get into the tiling game, just wondering if any one had any advice on the best course to take to get a basic understanding of the trade.

    Any replys would be appreciated

    Thanks

    Michael

    Have a look at uk pro tiling, I researched loads of courses and found this the best one, lots of information on the course and Darren and Tracey very helpful even after the course has finished. I travelled from South Wales to attend.
    Hope this helps you

    I was in the same boat as you.
    I followed Darren's advice and within a month I handed my notice in as I had some much work coming in. I am currently working 7 days a week.
    This forum is fantastic for newbies like us as if you need an answer to a problem you will find a reply within a few minutes/hours.
    Good luck with your career mate.

    I've done Darren's course, it's brilliant, really in depth. I finished 2 weeks ago and will need to be handing my notice in at work within next month!

    Hope it goes well on the course. Thats how I started after redundancy. Courses give you a good foundation of the basics to build a career.
