Bricklaying Courses

The also offers intensive bricklaying courses that teach the basics of bricklaying. By keeping the course numbers down to a minimum, we are able to give more individual attention throughout the course. Students who attended the bricklaying courses will have sufficient knowledge to enable them to achieve a professional finish. This does not mean that a student will become a fully proficient bricklayer overnight. Don't forget, all our instructors have been plastering years!
