Course overview

Course overview

Progress your career in the construction industry with this apprenticeship qualification. This course will qualify you as a plasterer and help you become a recognised tradesperson.

Increased specialisation in the construction industry has lead to strong demand for fibrous plasterers, with demand for an additional 25,000 plasterers expected over the next five years.

This course will allow you to apply and practice plastering skills to complement your on-the-job training. You will learn to install and finish plasterboard and fibre cement sheeting to line walls and ceilings. You'll construct bulkheads and assemble partitions as well as install cornicing. Our trade-qualified teachers will train you to work safely and effectively and will assist you to plan and inspect your work to ensure the highest standards.

Successful completion of this qualification as an apprenticeship will allow you to apply to become a qualified fibrous plasterer in a commercial or domestic setting.
