The tiling DIY course will teach you basic tiling skills. You will be able to tile surfaces such as walls and floors; basically any surface that can receive tiles. You’ll also learn how to remove and repair, damaged tiles, safely and quickly.
Some training providers offer the tiling DIY course at several basic levels but in general, even the most basic course will teach you to become competent enough to install a simple tiling project.
You might also be interested in the option of enrolling in a tiling DIY level course that offers assessments and/or City and Guilds certificates on successful completion of the course. Those tiling courses offer more comprehensive basic training that will expose you to complex tiling methods and techniques, including problem solving how to tile around difficult spaces and uneven surfaces.
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.
