Beginner Bricklaying Courses in Dartford

We run a range of bricklaying courses here at Able Skills, from short beginner’s courses to much longer qualification courses for those looking for a new start in their career. One of our most popular bricklaying courses is the 5-day introduction course.

The 5-day Bricklaying course at Able Skills has been recognised by City & Guilds as a comprehensive introduction to bricklaying and if you choose this option to learn bricklaying, you will receive a City & Guilds certificate to recognise the time spent with us.

This is an ideal beginners course and throughout the 5 days you will learn aspects of bricklaying ranging from setting out building lines to covering brick and block work. You will build a corner, a pillar, a pier and a cavity wall. You will also learn how to do pointing for face work and how to put in a damp course.

This is a real hands-on instructor lead practical course. You will undertake a variety of tasks to ensure that you have a good understanding of the basic principles of bricklaying so that when you leave the centre, you feel confident in your bricklaying abilities.

We have a very high rate of students taking this course and upgrading to the higher qualification course as they enjoyed it so much.

If you decide to upgrade to City & Guilds qualifications, we will take into account the time already spent on the introduction course and also deduct the course fees already paid – this will reduce the overall time and cost to achieve a more robust City & Guilds qualification. This will then allow you to work as a Bricklayer and make a start on a new career.
