Plastering is an art. Ask anyone who has tried to do it for themselves and failed. It takes skill and lots and lots of practice to create a smooth, even finish that will protect and enhance walls. If you enjoy creating high quality work and want to work as a plasterer, but aren’t yet employed, then this course is for you. It will teach you about basic plastering techniques, the various materials used and allow you to practice your skills in a simulated working environment.
On successful completion you may progress to:

You could also look for entry level employment as a trainee plasterer or site labourer.
