The Tile Association’s Master Tile Fixer certification scheme was introduced to support TTA’s vision to “raise tile and tiling standards and enhance installation expertise and craftsmanship”. The scheme will certify highly experienced and skilled independent tile fixers with the aim of promoting best practice and encouraging existing tiling professionals to strive for excellence.
