  Please note: We have just finished reviewing our courses to ensure we continue to meet the needs of our customers whilst providing quality and affordable training. We have made some changes to our courses for 2020 and we've even added a new 5 day plastering and Coving course!

With this, we have had to increase the price on some of our training courses to enable us to deliver the high standard of training we pride ourselves on. The good news is we've managed to keep the price of our most popular course our 5 Day Intensive Plastering the same and we've even added in Coving too!

Please see our Courses section for 2020 Course options and pricing

About our Plastering Course
Students will first have a demonstration on the use of tools and mixing plaster, preparation of walls so they know what to do. Each person will have there own bay to work in. Students will then have a chance to work on there own bays and at there own pace. A service will be provided after the course if you need advice on any jobs you are planning to do.Anyone who's serious about starting a course in plastering immediately faces a steep learning curve. However, if you want to 'shortcut' the process (and cut down on the months, even years of trail and error that most people face) The Mark Wightman Training Centre is the ideal starting place.The courses we hold are very much hands on, with tools and equipment initially explained and demonstrated by instructors. The courses are all practical and as a result you will get dirty! So you should bring with you some appropriate clothing. We will supply all the tools, materials and safety equipment you will be using while you are here. We also require all students to wear protective footwear i.e. boots you don't mind getting dirty.
