Plastering course

Short, 4 Day Plastering Course in Manchester enables Matt to change career with great success

Plastering Course student Matt told us of his experience at The DIY School in August 2008 and how it has enabled him to start a new and successful life.

Until August 2008, Matt had been working hard in Farming and more recently labouring and ground work. An opportunity to try his hand at plastering when working on a building project opened his eyes to something that offered a rare combination in life. He found plastering enjoyable, he had natural ability and the skill was in demand. Matt immediately set about finding out how he could get more knowledge and training in plastering and a search on the Internet brought him to The DIY School website.

Matt chose a plastering course at The DIY School over other local schools on the strength of the web site and inparticular the case studies. Well here he is on one of them himself now and he is pleased to say that The DIY School lives up to the case studies.

We managed to catch up with Matt on a job in Sandbach where he was working with another DIY School student Brian Bennett. He chatted to us as he laid down yet another wall. Matt told us

"Since August 2008 the plastering work has been continuous. By building up awareness through friends and family and placing his business card in key locations he is now getting a large proportion of his work through word of mouth and repeat business."

Since he attended the Essential Plastering Course Matt told us that he is earning more, working less and is confident about the future. He is now looking to take on bigger jobs working with more DIY School Students confident in the knowledge that they will be well trained and very capable.
