[08/04/17]   Learn Tiling, Tiler Training
There are a shortage of Tilers throughout the U.K. including Scotland.
Have you ever seen a company advertising for an apprentice Tiler? No you haven’t.
That’s why there is a shortage
That's why Tiling is a very well paid job with Tilers earning in excess of £1,000 per week.
We at Diy Trade School teach a 5 day intensive, 'hands on' tiling course at our purpose built training centre in Coatbridge.
If you need longer we'll continue to teach you at NO EXTRA COST. We can't be any fairer than that.
This course used to be held over a 10 day period but I found I would have to slow the trainee down then add meaningless training, that looked wonderfull, to fill in the time, but which you would never ever do in a lifetime of tiling.
That is not only dishonest, but also immoral. I see many training centres doing this and charging extra money. Disgusting. Karma will get them.
The course is very easily learned and suited to all people from school leavers to pensioners.
There are no exams to sit and the course is 99% 'hands on.' You only stop practicing when you are being taught something new.
Q - Your courses seem short, do I need a longer course.
A - No, TILER SCHOOL offers fast track professional training to a very high standard.
The methods we use are at the highest level to get the job done fast.
The course has been running for several years and is structured to get maximum learning over to you in the shortest timescale, many learners have already successfully completed our tiling program and are successfully running their own businesses.
Our method of teaching is : Explain It, Demonstrate It, then you Practice It.
We also explain, and demonstrate different techniques to complete the same task and have you practice these different techniques.
Some training centres may seem cheap in price but they draw the training out so you need to keep going back and back which ends up costing thousands.
We are straight to the point to get the job done and various techniques into your head.
Q - How good will I be after I finish the course?
A - We have an 100% successful track record with many testimonials over the years.
Our course is so well structured and the demonstrations are explained so clearly its hard not to follow and do a good job. We expect you to achieve a very high standard by the time you leave, most people cannot believe what they have actually produced.
What is the difference between our course and others?
We only run professional tiling courses, we DON'T run basic courses which leave you unable to go out and work.
Going on a course to stick a few tiles on a basic wall with no problems on it and with basic setting out is just an introduction to tiling.
Our School training teaches you what you need to know when tiling out in the real world of customers jobs, all the different problems to deal with and how to overcome them.
We don't have you sitting watching video's etc which saves us materials.
It's constant practice with the tools and materials from start to finish.
We will teach you ALL the skills you need to start working as a Tiler and start earning money immediately upon completion of the course.
You are taught from the very basics to a high level so that you hit the ground running and immediately able to take up employment or start your own business.
In addition to the technical skills taught, we teach you how to price a job, how to lay-out a job and where to buy tools and consumables etc.
So, here's the bottom line. You can learn a skill that's in demand, easily learned and pays great money or you can continue to struggle through life in this time of austerity.
The course lasts 5 days and the cost will normally be easily recouped during your first weeks work.
Recommendations? Read this from Benny :
'So happy with what Robert has taught me. I never thought I could tile to such a high standard in such a short time. Cheers for all your time and skills you've given me.
Read this from Peter :
Excellent course. Great tutor in Robert. Very knowledgeable person. Well worth the money. Learned a lot of useful tips. Rab is the real deal, a legend.
Read this from Dean :
Picked up 5 jobs already after showing people pictures of the work I did at the training centre.
Read this from Stephen :
Finished my first job today and the guy was so delighted he's given me another job. I'm really enjoying tiling thanks to yourself. Stephens client gave him a review saying "Stephen did a great job tiling our kitchen and WC. The work was of the highest standard and Stephen was professional and very tidy. I highly recommend Stephen."
Read this from James who is one of many Plumbers I've trained.
Hi Rab, Just to say a huge thanks for this week. I got everything out of your course to increase my chances, as a plumber, getting jobs with some tiling.
- I've had lots of Plumbers on this Tiling course because they were losing Bathroom refurbishment jobs as they couldn't get a Tiler who was available to do the tiling side of the refurbishment/upgrade.
The course is by far the cheapest in Britain at £650 and a certificate is given upon completion of the course.
We are located close to the M8 motorway for those travelling by car.
You are welcome to come and visit us and have any questions answered.

[04/11/14]   At the end of the tax year, the Revenue Office sent an inspector to audit the books of a local hospital.
While the agent was checking the books, he turned to the executive of the hospital and said “I notice you buy a lot of bandages. What do you do with the end of the roll when there's too little left to be of any use?"
"Good question," noted the executive. "We save them up and send them back to the bandage company and every once in a while, they send us a free roll."
"Oh," replied the auditor, somewhat disappointed that his unusual question had a practical answer.
But on he went, in his obnoxious way.
“”What about all these plaster purchases? What do you do with what's left over after setting a cast on a patient?"
"Ah, yes," replied the executive, realising that the inspector was trying to trap him with an unanswerable question. "We save it and send it back to the manufacturer and every so often they send us a free bag of plaster."
"I see," replied the auditor, thinking hard about how he could fluster the know-it-all executive. "Well, What do you do with all the remains from the circumcision surgeries?"
"Here, too, we do not waste," answered the executive.
"What we do is save all the little foreskins and send them to the tax office, .......................and about once a year they send us a complete prick."

[04/10/14]   Did you hear about the two blondes
who froze to death in a drive-in movie waiting for it to start?

They had gone to see 'Closed for the Winter.'

[04/09/14]   A blonde was driving home after a game & got caught in a really bad
hailstorm.. Her car was covered with dents, so the next day she took it
To a repair shop. The shop owner saw that she was a blonde, so he
decided to have some fun... He told her to go home and blow into the
tail pipe really hard, & all the dents would pop out.

So, the blonde went home, got down on her hands & knees & started
blowing into her tailpipe.. Nothing happened.. So she blew a little
harder, & still nothing happened.

Her blonde roommate saw her & asked, 'What are you doing?' The first
blonde told her how the repairman had instructed her to blow into the
tail pipe in order to get all the dents to pop out.
The roommate rolled her eyes & said, 'Uh, like hello!
You need to roll up the windows first.'

My Mom had been taking the full-stalk canned style asparagus, pureed it and took 4 tablespoons in the morning and 4 tablespoons later in the day. She did this for over a month. She is on chemo pills for Stage 3 lung cancer in the pleural area and her cancer cell count went from 386 down to 125 as of this past week.
Her oncologist said she will not need to see him for 3 months.


Several years ago I met a man seeking asparagus for a friend who had cancer. He gave me a copy of an article, entitled "Asparagus For Cancer" printed in the Cancer News Journal, December 1979. I will share it here, just as it was shared with me: I am a biochemist, and have specialized in the relation of diet to health or over 50 years.
Several years ago, I learned of the discovery of Richard R. Vensal, D.D.S. That asparagus might cure cancer. Since then, I have worked
With him on his project. We have accumulated a number of favorable case histories.
Here are a few examples:

Case No. 1, A man with an almost hopeless case of Hodgkin's disease (cancer of the lymph glands) who was completely incapacitated. Within 1 year of starting the asparagus therapy, his doctors were unable to detect any signs of cancer, and he was back on a schedule of strenuous exercise.
Case No. 2, A successful businessman, 68 years old, suffered from cancer of the bladder for 16 years. After years of medical treatments, including radiation without improvement, he began taking asparagus. Within 3 months, examinations revealed that his bladder tumor had disappeared and that his kidneys were normal.

Case No. 3, On March 5th 1971, a man who had lung cancer was put on the operating table where they found lung cancer so widely spread that it was inoperable. The surgeon sewed him up and declared his case hopeless. On April 5th he heard about the Asparagus therapy and immediately started taking it. By August,
X-ray pictures revealed that all signs of the cancer had disappeared. He is now back at his regular business routine.
Case No. 4, A woman had been troubled for a number of years with skin cancer. She developed different skin cancers which were diagnosed by the acting specialist as advanced. Within 3 months after beginning asparagus therapy, the skin specialist said her skin looked fine with no more skin lesions. This woman reported that the asparagus therapy also cured her kidney disease, which had started in 1949. She had over 10 operations for kidney stones, and was receiving government disability payments for an inoperable, terminal, kidney condition. She attributes the cure of this kidney trouble entirely to the asparagus treatment.

I was not surprised at this result as `The elements of materia medica', edited in 1854 by a Professor at the University of Pennsylvania , stated that asparagus was used as a popular remedy for kidney stones. He even referred to experiments, in 1739, on the power of asparagus in dissolving stones. Note the dates!

We would have other case histories but the medical establishment has interfered with our obtaining some of the records. I am therefore appealing to readers to spread this good news and help us to gather a large number of case histories that will overwhelm the medical skeptics about this unbelievably simple and natural remedy.

For the treatment, asparagus should be cooked before using. Fresh or canned asparagus can be used. I have corresponded with the two leading canners of asparagus, Giant and Stokely, and I am satisfied that these brands contain no pesticides or preservatives.

Place the cooked asparagus in a blender and liquefy to make a puree. Store in the refrigerator. Give the patient 4 full tablespoons twice daily, morning and evening.
Patients usually show some improvement in 2-4 weeks.
It can be diluted with water and used as a cold or hot drink.
This suggested dosage is based on present experience, but certainly larger amounts can do no harm and may be needed in some cases.

As a biochemist I am convinced of the old saying that `what cures can prevent.' Based on this theory, my wife and I have been using asparagus puree as a beverage with our meals. We take 2 tablespoons diluted in water to suit our taste with breakfast and with dinner. I take mine hot and my wife prefers hers cold.
For years we have made it a practice to have blood surveys taken as
part of our regular checkups. The last blood survey, taken by a medical doctor who specializes in the nutritional approach to health, showed substantial improvements in all categories over the last one, and we can attribute these improvements to nothing but the asparagus drink.
As a biochemist, I have made an extensive study of all aspects of cancer, and all of the proposed cures. As a result, I am convinced that asparagus fits in better with the latest theories about cancer.

Asparagus contains a good supply of protein called histones, which are believed to be active in controlling cell growth. For that reason, I believe asparagus can be said to contain a substance that I call cell growth normalizer. That accounts for its action on cancer and in acting as a general body tonic In any event, regardless of theory, asparagus used as we suggest, is a harmless substance. The FDA cannot prevent you from using it and it may do you much good. It has been reported by the US National Cancer Institute, that asparagus is the highest tested food containing glutathione, which is considered one of the body's most potent anticarcinogens and antioxidants.

Just a side note... In case you are wondering why this has not been made public, there is no profit in curing cancer!


[03/30/14]   I took my son out for his first pint today
I bought him a Fosters, he didn't like I drank it
Next I bought him a Tennents, he didn't like that I drank it too
After that I tried him with Guinness, Budweiser, Stella, Export, Bacardi, Vodka then Cider and you've guessed it.............I drank them too.
Well, I can tell you, that by the time we got to the Whisky...................
I could hardly push the pram home.

[03/27/14]   What job pay's great money? Read this and find out.
Well, Tiling Training Centre 'DIY Trade School' in Airdrie got an enquiry from a lady in Aberdeen about taking a course in Tiling.
She and her husband own a kitchen fitting company in Aberdeen and they have a contract to fit kitchens for B&Q.
The tilers who they contacted to tile around the kitchen units wanted 850 pounds for a day and a half's work.
Hence the reason she's arranging Tiling training in-house within her company.
Lesson? Tilers earn great money. We teach tiling at our training centre near Chapelhall and Airdrie.

Report 'demolishes' Chancellor's reasons for rejecting currency union The report, commissioned by businessman Sir Tom Hunter, states George Osborne's arguments against currency union are fundamentally flawed.

[03/21/14]   Norway's success
Dismissing the latest attempt from Alistair Darling to talk down Scotland’s economic prospects with independence, the SNP pointed out that Norway is considerably more dependent on its oil reserves than an independent Scotland would be, and yet has managed to become one of the most prosperous countries in the world – while at the same time creating the world’s largest sovereign wealth fund.
“Over the last few years Norway’s oil revenues have consistently made up more than 25% of their total tax revenues – stretching to as high as 36.5% - and they are doing much better than the UK in terms of having a strong economy and fair society.

“Norway has become one of the most prosperous countries in the world, while at the same time they have invested their oil revenues wisely and created the world’s largest sovereign wealth fund.

“The simple fact is that - as the recent Institute for Fiscal Studies report showed - with responsibility for managing our own resources, Scotland would be in a stronger financial position than the UK.

"There are up to 24 billion recoverable barrels of oil equivalent remaining in the North Sea with a wholesale value of over £1.5 trillion. There is more oil and gas tax revenue still to come out of the North Sea than has already been generated.

“At every opportunity, the anti-independence campaign has talked down Scotland, talked down Scotland’s key industries, and talked down Scotland’s neighbours – who are enjoying stronger economic growth than austerity UK."
