On this course, it is important that you have a good understanding of health and safety and how it relates to the industry. In your theory lessons, you will also look at the different properties in the materials you will be using, the types of bricks you use and why and how to calculate your quantities to ensure your work is of a high quality.
You will learn the practical skills relating to different structures in the bricklaying industry. You will learn to develop drawings and the calculations involved in creating your designs. You will look at more complex bricklaying bonds and patterns and will also learn how to design and create basic brick arches.
