This course provides comprehensive training for wall and floor tiling, 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, with your skills 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.
To receive this qualification you must complete 16 core units and three elective units.
Elective units have been chosen by Holmesglen based on feedback from industry and staff qualifications.
