The dry lining course consists of training in the use of plasterboard instead of/or to replace concrete or wet plaster finishing to internal block work. Dry lining is also commonly used in internal timber frame fit-out, in buildings of commercial or residential spaces. Dry lining systems result in more choices of insulation materials and inner partitions that are lightweight and highly flexible in shaping the design of an internal room.
While learning dry lining skills is straightforward, it is considered a skilled trade and one that is fast becoming commonly required in the building industry.
All training is hands-on, practical and based on real life applications. Most learning providers will provide tools and materials but you will be required to wear suitable clothing and protective footwear (preferably steel toed), which is compulsory.
