Hi everyone, new to the forum and new to the world of tiling. I'm looking for a career change away from my current trade (car mechanic) . I'm really eager to get into tiling, for some reason there's just something about it that really interests me. Anyway, I've done a bit of research and it seems most people go to UK Pro tiling, well this is 6 hours each way from me. The other option is gold trowel which is 3 hours away but doesn't have half the reviews that UK Pro has. Would uk Pro be worth travelling for over gold trowel? It's so hard to choose which is the right one for me. They both seem to say relatively the same things about what the course includes. And the other decision is how long the course is, for instance uk Pro do 9 day course and 13 day, which would I be better going for!? Again gold trowel do 10 day and 3 weeks. How much do I need to know and learn to have enough info and training to actually earn a wage from it? Do I need to know about working with things like natural stone and 600x600? I havnt got a clue, decisions decisions! Sorry for the long post by the way!
Many thanks
