This article is all about tilers and seeks to answer any questions you might have about tilers.
Tilers are tradespeople who specialize in cutting and installing tiles to floors and walls of bathrooms, kitchens and other rooms.
How do you qualify as a tiler ?
There is no formal requirement to work as a tiler unlike say working as an electrician or a gas safe plumber.
To become a tiler, you can start an apprenticeship with an experienced qualified tiler and learn from them over three to four years. Then you can continue with them in their business or start your own business.
In the UK you can enrol on the following courses before pursuing an apprenticeship
Level 1 Diploma Wall and Floor Tiling

Level 2 Extended Diploma in Wall and Floor Tiling
You can also just pay someone to teach you tiling. Private companies such as uktilingcourses.co.uk or tiling-courses.co.uk carry out ‘learn tiling quick’ courses.
