can a newbie mortar/grout down slate?

Have a slate deck. From time to time some slate come loose. I can remove old mortar and grout. But can a newbie mortar/grout/seal the slate back into place? Or does that require a pro?
Thank you.

You become a pro by doing it your self.

Only think with slate is that it comes in various thicknesses so take a close look at what you currently have. Personally I've done slate and never worried to much about the height and it just becomes part of the character.
