This article is all about everything you ever need to know about plasterers
There is nothing stopping a completely unskilled and inexperienced person calling themselves a plasterer.
Unlike being an electrician or a gas engineer, a plasterer can’t hurt anyone so that is why there is no formal qualification around them. If they can do the work they can do the work.
But if you want to get a formal qualification you can 1) complete an apprenticeship or 2) achieve a level 2 NVQ diploma.
This will allow you to get a blue skilled CSCS card as a skilled worker and allow you to work on large building sites.
To get the NVQ diploma you need at least 5 years experience.
You can also achieve a Level 3 NVQ diploma which will let you obtain a gold skilled services CSCS card.
Here is a list of courses available in plastering. Remember that only a NVQ level 2 or a completed apprenticeship will get you a CSCS card.
