    Hi dan welcome to the forum.
    If you can work a hawk and trowel you're halfway there. Its just a case of finding some1 willing to help ya out. As you were a site labourer could you not ask some of the taping contractors that were on your sites ?????? Good luck

    Welcome to the forum Dan. The search function may be useful to see if anyones mentioned any courses before on the site.
    Your messages are really important to us
    ...but not important enough to employ a sufficient number of support staff to answer them.

    British Gypsum do courses, Dan. They have a place in the Penrith area but I'm sure there will be another 1 or 2 in the south.
