intermediate dry lining

This qualification is for you if you wish to work as a Dry-Liner in the construction industry. Dry-Lining is the fitting of plaster board or other board material to finish walls and ceilings in place of the more traditional Plastering. In many cases Dry-Lining can also provide a suitable surface for a fine finish coat of plaster. Many modern domestic and commercial properties will be finished with Dry-Lining instead of Plaster and this qualification will provide you with the skills needed to work as a Dry-Liner in the industry. This qualification is suitable for you if you are 16 years old and over.


One day a week at our Tottenham Centre and the rest of the time working closely with an employer.
