New Member-- Interested in Everything, Yet Have No Experience


Are there any classes you may attend, or groups you may join, in which instructors allow you to use all those expensive tools in a training environment, pointing out your weaknesses and strengths, giving you precious tips that anyone would love to know?

For instance, could I cheaply learn how to tile a floor, or put in a new window, or even learn how to saw wood with the correct tools?

I live near Nashville, Tennessee. Maybe someone here knows of a secret society of non-rich people who learn to do splendid home improvement.

OJT, (on the job training), community colleges, trade schools, etc. can all help, but you need to stop telling people about the SSNRP or it won't be a SECRET any more!

You're here Count. Plenty of info online and plenty of folks willing to help!

Many home improvement centers and specialty shops (tile, etc) have occasional instructional seminars...Although some tend to make things look easier than they actually are.

I agree with KC

I agree with KCtermite, I learned to lay and finish ceramic tile at a Saturday morning workshop at a large box store (orange in color). They made it look easy and in reality for what I needed it was easy and they had all of the great tools you needed to use in the learning process. What the stores or ask a rep what kind of programs they are offering. Im sure the blue store has them also
