    Hello,

    I am a qualified electrician working in London. Thinking about changing my job and become a wooden floor layerer. What's your suggestions should I stay in what I do Or learn this new skill?
    Any good college in London where to take the course?
    Some colleges courses are 2 weeks or so, are they any good?

    Thank you

    Depends on what kind of wood floor fitter you want to be, if you're looking at whacking down straight planks of engineered, then a 2 week course will probably get you started, but whatever you do, i'd say do some floor prep courses first ( some manufacturer do them, as well as places like fita and floorskills).but personally I'd go with fita or floorskills and do their range of courses, there is a lot to learn and trying to learn it all in one short period might be a bit much

    Normally I would nail to ply and glue to concrete. or you could float over the ply, but nailing to ply is traditional.
