  • Program Overview

    This course provides comprehensive training for wall and floor tiling apprentices, and covers all practical and theoretical aspects of the trade.

    Much of wall and floor tiling work is straightforward, but it often requires skill and judgement. You must understand working drawings of buildings and be able to apply basic mathematics. Wall and floor tilers also do more complicated tiling work such as mosaics, pools and spas. These jobs require training, ability and experience.

    As a wall and floor tiler, you can work on commercial and domestic projects. Your work is an art and will stand for many years. Most importantly, you'll be in demand.

    You will receive hands on training from industry experienced teachers, train in excellent training facilities that are acknowledged as the best in Victoria, and gain practical experience on full scale projects.

    You may also benefit from flexible delivery that includes a blend of on site and off site training and assessment, which is determined by the needs of the employer and your abilities as the apprentice.

  • Program Structure

    To receive this qualification you must complete 16 core units and 3 elective units. Elective units have been chosen by Holmesglen based on feedback from industry and staff qualifications. If you have already completed other eligible elective units, these may be counted towards completion of this course.

    Assessment

    Assessment may be a combination of written and online assignments, tests, examinations and practical application projects.
