    This 10 day plastering course met with all my expectations and more. I found Silver Trowel with a google search easily. The instructors teaching performance was pitched at just the right level with humour thrown in for good measure I have recently retired from the police force so I am looking for new skills and career options The facilities are excellent. Having gained new skills and enjoyed my time I would not hesitate to recommend Silver Trowels professional training to others.

    A very professional training set up with great facilities and teachers. I found the training methods to be very easy going with a relaxed teaching environment.

    I found Silver Trowel easily from a GOOGLE search. I wanted to be able to plaster to a good enough level for home development I feel very confident that I can do this after the completion of this excellent plastering course.

  10. Ben Urquhart

    I plan to get into plastering full time so I have attended this plastering course as a taster. The 2 weeks have been great I could not of asked for more from the trainers or the course. I am very pleased with the new skills that I have learnt.

  11. Richard Dowling

    I completed the 10 day plastering course in March 2016. I had been made redundant and decided to use the time to try something I had always wanted to, but never got around to. I also wanted to learn a trade that I could put into practice and maybe even inot a new career. I was unsure which course to choose but Colin listened to my needs and suggested the 10 day. The course was so much more than I expected and to be honest had I not have been re-employed straight after the course I would have booked one more week and gone for the City and Guilds. Colin was an excellent teacher and gave the same treatment to everybody irrespective of expertise. I should say that prior to this course I had never picked up a hawk and trowel but have now skimmed my bedroom. Brilliant course, the facilities were excellent and the atmosphere relaxed but informative. I would highly recommend.

  12. Emma James
