Outcome / Qualification etc.

Many providers are offering misleading City and Guilds Plastering Courses and giving students the impression that they can work on-site with this Qualification alone.

You cannot do this, however, depending on the achievement of the Qualification and what units are covered, the City and Guilds Certificate will give you the competence to achieve Professional Standards within the Industry. It is our Recommendation that if you require this Certificate you must check with your Training Provider what you will be covering and the authenticity of your potential achievements.
