Studying the Certificate II in Building and Construction Pre-apprenticeship at Holmesglen
This course has been developed for the specific requirements of the bricklaying industry. You will undertake training in hand skills, trade terminology and the use of various products, including clay bricks and concrete masonry.
Studying bricklaying at Holmesglen, you will receive hands on learning from industry experienced teachers. You will train in Victoria's best bricklaying training facilities, and gain practical experience on full-scale projects.
Much of a bricklayer's work is straightforward, but often requires skill and judgement. You must understand working drawings of buildings and be able to apply basic mathematics.
Bricklayers also do more complicated work, such as constructing arches and building fireplaces.
These jobs require training, ability and experience.
The benefits of becoming a bricklayer include working in a range of locations, including outdoors. Your work is an art and will stand for many years - and your skills will be in demand.
