      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..

      Hi,

      Just letting you know about the new Tiling Course Review website. Please add your training centre by clicking 'Submit a Course'. Enter your URL and it will fetch some content for you from your website. Change the title to your training centre name and then write a small description about the course and it'll include you in the database.

      Then you can get your course delegates to 'vote' and leave their comments too.

      This isn't taking sponsors, and it'll be unmoderated like the Tile Network. It'll be another great website when it takes off.

      I'll try and get those who I know have been your centre leave a review once you've added your centre.

      The URL you need again is: Tiling Course Reviews | YOUR Reivews of Tiling Courses

      Thanks in advance - and keep in touch.

      Cheers

      Hi Darren, I got back to my flat in Windsor today and looked through my paperwork and found my level 2 certificate sorry mate I must have opened it and put it away hopefully you haven't applied for it for me again. I really enjoyed last weeks course Paul really helped me as I was quite rusty! after last week I've decided to go for it I brought a van today and I'm sorting out the rest of my business, thanks again to you and your team, Lee. By the way thankfully I took your advice and didn't go for that job in Cumbria!!
