 The Advanced Speedskim Course at the DIY School in Manchester will suit men and women looking to extend their plastering skills after attending the Essential Plastering Course at The DIY School.

The 1 Day Advanced Speedskim Course is for students who have already attended the 4 day Plastering Essentials Course.

Included in the price of the course is the Speedskim 600mm & 1200mm Pro Speedskim Blades and a pole attachment (usually over £128). 

Speedskim Blades

You will learn a plastering technique which utilises the Speedskim Technology® which allows ‘fattening in’ immediately after plaster application – which brings no moisture to the surface, which means you can tackle bigger walls and ceilings in one go.

Speedskim® ST accelerates the overall plastering process. With its unique flexibility, Speedskim® ST out performs all other Featheredges and Darby’s, achieving a flatter faster finish – giving the Plasterer the confidence to complete larger walls and ceilings. If you're a trademan, the New Speedskim® Flexible Rule is the obvious choice to stay ahead of the competition - with the potential of increased earning capacity.

This Plastering Course can enable students to tackle even more challenging projects at home or at work, where a City & Guilds Plastering Course Qualification or NVQ Plastering Course Qualification is not required, as is the case with self employed domestic plasterers. It will however, form the basis of proof in your career in plastering, if you should want to get a formal qualification further on in your career.

The Advanced Plastering Skills learnt on the course will cover skills that require previous trowel skills learnt on the 4 Day Plastering Essentials Course and whilst these skill are not as in demand as The Plastering Essentials Course skills, they are still required for some more specific or complex plastering jobs or projects giving the opportunity to save more on DIY Projects or charge more for those offering plastering as a paid service.
