I'm a female property investor constantly forking out for small plumbing repairs - so wanted to learn to do it myself. It makes financial sense to pay someone to do the work for me. However - because I need to turn up at a property when there is an issue - it makes sense I fix it while I'm there because most times it will be something very simple (but I didn't know how to fix these issues.... Until now!) I was worried about being the only girl, but felt instantly relaxed. Lyndon was a great teacher and good laugh. On the 5 day intensive plumbing course I learned how to fit pipes using soldering and compression fittings, plumb a full bathroom (fitting the pipes through the entire bathroom, plumbing in all taps, putting the toilet together etc), fit radiators, fit a kitchen sink with plumbing (including T-ing off for a washing machine and an outside tap). I've learned a few jobs tradesmen have done for me were nonsense - so now I'm much wiser to what is required (and can do it myself). The biggest surprise was how easy repairing a toilet is. Parts are usually around £10 (£20 max) and they screw in so why waste money having someone come fix it? As soon as I got home I fixed a few issues that had been bugging me for months. I may return to do joinery or learn to fit worktops next. Thanks YTA!
Many thanks for a lovely review Katy, We are glad you enjoyed the plumbing course and already put your skills to good use round your home. Looks like we may see you on the carpentry & joinery course too!
Hello Our week was excellent. Great teacher in Lyndon was excellent. Learned alot of theory and mostly practical skills. Just need to practice more. Hopefully we will back next winter for more training. Thanks Lee and Sungyim

I recently attended the kitchen fitting course with Lawrence at YTA, the course and the tutor were excellent, I really enjoyed everything about the course and the friendly helpful atmosphere within the YTA team. I now feel ready to go self employed as a kitchen fitter which is what was hoping for from the course! I have previously attended the plastering course with YTA which was also excellent with Dave. I will be returning next year to do the plumbing and electrical courses which I'm looking forward to thank you to Lawrence and YTA

Really enjoyed the 10 day plumbing course and more importantly learnt a huge amount of skills. Lyndon is a great teacher, clearly has years in the trade and the knowledge to accompany it. The atmosphere there is fun, welcoming and relaxed I highly recommend. I thought it was that good i’ve just booked to do another 4 courses there

i recently attended a 5 day intensive wall and floor tiling course, and found that the course was very constructive and gave me further experience to progress within the course. The staff were very extremely helpful and made myself feel very at home, as i came from south wales nearly 5 hours away. I will be coming back in the next few weeks to do another 5day course of tiling as i really enjoyed and found it very beneficial for myself.

attended the 10 day Intensive Carpentry course to learn new skills to help with property renovations. My trainer Lawrence has a wealth of knowledge and was very articulate in imparting that knowledge to the group of 3 that were on the course. The course was well structured and moved at your own pace. I would highly recommend YTA. I enjoyed it so much that I’ve booked to do the kitchen fitting course.

I completed the 2 week tiling course and level 1 certificate in June 2019. I have taken my time in writing a review as I wanted to see how what I learnt would play out in the real world. Being a woman with zero tiling experience I was apprehensive about starting the course, I needn't have been. I was treated the same as the others on the course and no question however silly I thought it was, went unanswered or made me feel patronized. I enjoyed the course so much that I handed my notice in to my comfortable sales role in construction sales the following Monday and started on my path to setting up my own Tiling business. They can't teach you 10 years experience in 2 weeks and they dont pretend to be able too. They do teach you the basics and more. I went away and practised on my own and now feel confident to take on jobs myself and grow my skill set from there. I recently went back and did 3 days plastering to help me with my tiling, putting up plasterboards etc properly. I think that's my main point, they teach you how to do things properly to start with. I cant recommend YTA enough, really friendly teachers, a good set up with all the tools you'll need, easy to get to off the motorway and flexible. I will no doubt be going back for more courses in the future.

I have just completed my two weeks Level 1 in carpentry and joinery. I really enjoyed my training over the two weeks, learning so many new skills in a friendly environment. My tutor Lawrence was great at explaining what we needed to do and demonstrating the technique used to complete the task. I would definitely recommend the YTA training centre if you are looking to start something new in the industry or further your skills. A big thank you to the team.

I attended a suite of YTA courses including Tiling, Carpentry, Plumbing, Plastering, Bricklaying and Kitchen Fitting. I was a novice, working in IT, with little more experience than the odd DIY job. I have used all the training as a landlord, renovating a few properties. I've installed 3 bathrooms (includes all appliances , tiling, and flooring), and I'm currently installing my 2nd kitchen (again involving plenty of plumbing, tiling, woodwork etc). As well as numerous other DIY tasks, around the place. I understand this would be a small fortune to pay tradespeople to do. I've done it myself, thanks to skills and confidence developed as a result of attending YTA courses, instructed by the excellent tutors Lorry, Dave, and Graham. I also gained a great deal of knowledge surrounded by industry trades people, also cross-training across disciplines. A very helpful perspective. I've plenty to learn in maintaining properties, but I think its helpful to get a good grounding in what is a multi-discipline/skill set of tasks. Many thanks to tutors and course colleagues.I recommend to anyone who wants to have a go and do a good job, and some might say, professional.
