Course overview

Complete this apprenticeship qualification with TAFE Queensland to become a qualified wall and floor tiler. According the the Australian Government's Job Outlook service, wall and floor tilers are currently a skill in demand with employers finding it hard to fill vacancies.

You may complete new installations or renovation work on interior or exterior surfaces of houses, shops, offices, factories as well as structures such as swimming pools and spas. Our industry-qualified teachers will ensure you can undertake tiling tasks in a safe and effective manner.
