Tiling Courses Scotland
Tiling Courses? Who Are We And Why Should You Learn to Tile?
We are based in Central Scotland in Coatbridge. Our trainer Robert has been training students for over ten years and we've found that the majority have been very successful in creating and running their own tiling business. We have also found that many tradesmen, such as plumbers, come to us to learn how to tile because they can’t find a tiler to fit in with their busy timescales
In todays climate, with so many people being made unemployed or their jobs simply disappearing, it has been a huge comfort to many people having a skill that’s not just always in demand but pays well too.
While tiling is not a trade it is certainly a skill that is in major demand. Many of our ex students are booked in advance for 3-4 months or more.
Why not call for a chat with our friendly team, or read below to learn more about what we can do for you.
Our aim is your 100% satisfaction!
NOTE – To ensure we follow the current Covid guidelines, all booths have been separated and shielded to ensure separation from fellow students.

If at any time you feel that you need advice when on site, Robert, our vastly experienced trainer, will be more than happy to take any calls to help anyone who’s not sure of the next steps.
What do we NOT do at Tiling Courses Scotland?
Everyone is different but we prefer that customers choose their own tiles and trims. There are so many different choices and colours of both that it’s safer to do it this way. That’s not to say we can’t purchase for them, possibly saving them some money in the process, but we would recommend leaving the choosing to the customer. Similarly if the customer is looking for a coloured grout then it’s best again for the customer to choose this so there’s no possible mismatch on the tilers behalf. We also prefer pre mixed coloured grout to avoid colour mismatches and we can advise why on the course.
