Studying the Certificate III in Stonemasonry (Monumental/Installation) at Holmesglen
Our training includes the latest skills required of stonemasons such as laminating, edge polishing, drop downs, and sink cut outs. We also provide you with training of traditional skills such as those required for monumental, architectural and construction.
In consultation with your employer, we can provide the streaming of skills required by each aspect of the trade, reducing the time you will be required to spend on campus.
Recent changes in the stonemasonry industry have included the huge growth in kitchen bench tops using engineered and natural stone. This has led to a skills shortage for businesses specialising in bench tops and other commercial work.
