I woke up early today and decided to finish the course. I had three sections to do and got only one of 20 questions wrong in the pre-tests and only one of the post test questions wrong. In the end I ended up with a 90% average which is good but not great. Certainly not perfect.
I really learned a lot and loved the course layout and flow. I would strongly urge anyone serious about doing their own tile work to take and complete this course. As a homeowner or hard core DIYer this test will open your eyes to the shear volume of information needed in this industry.
It will also open your eyes to the requirements of the tile industry which differ many times from what the manufactures of products claim. Understanding what is needed by the industry will educate you from mishaps that you might make simply following a random post online.
Now it's time to take the TTMAC version (our Canadian Version). As I mentioned before I will take this course with my TTMAC Specification guide and will slow down my answers at post test times. I mis-read a few questions and lowered my grade. I did not use any resource to take this test and used only the teachers review and my own training to complete this course.
My apprentice s going to take this course with me. He will do so to further his training and I'm sure he will do quite well. Lets wait and see.
