Introduction to finishing plasterboard

Course Description

This two-day course is a great introduction for beginners who want to learn how to finish plasterboard for the first time. Taking part is a great way to build first-hand practical knowledge and gives new home builders or installers the skills needed to work safely and efficiently. Attendees will have a short induction which includes watching how-to videos and taking part in an informal Q + A session. The majority of the course is practical with an opportunity to try taping and jointing and skimming plasterboard. At the end of the two days there’s also the opportunity to recap everything taught and ask any questions.
