The Master Stroke Series is not to be confused with poor quality, home made video efforts generally made by unqualified individuals touting cheap DVDs available on amateur / free websites including YouTube. When you view an inferior DVD product, there is usually no accompanying recognised technical support or guarantee that the methods and products used are fit for purpose which can lead to costly mistakes. The Master Stroke DVD Tutorial Series is a brand you can trust.
Professional Training Courses
The cost of professional training can run into thousands of pounds because of the level of expertise involved. These DVDs, whilst not trying to replace professional building and conservation training courses, employ tradesmen and consultants at the highest level. They are used to supplement training courses and, as such, are available in many building and construction training centres. Each DVD in The Master Stroke Tutorial Series is tremendous value from only £29.99. The content is based on hundreds of years of working practice and they are a timeless resource.
