What You’ll Learn

An ideal course if you have basic bricklaying skills that you would like to build upon and also try your hand at putting together more ornate structures and brickwork designs. You will gain full knowledge of all of the various stages of bricklaying which will provide you with the ability and confidence to tackle more complex areas of brickwork.

How You’ll Learn

Having attended our introductory course you will now have the opportunity to improve your skills and you will have a choice of how you want the Advanced Course to run:

Option One

  • Basic work for an extension using bricks, blocks, cavity lintels, DPC, brick tiles etc

Option Two

  • Garden and retaining walls with attached and detached piers.
  • Oversailing using creasing tiles and brick on edge detail.
  • Various pointing: diamond point, weather struck, flush and recessed.

Option Three

  • Arches – segmental and semi-circular
  • Plinth walls in Stretcher, English and Flemish bonds

Again, this is a real hands-on course under direction and supervision of Able Skills Bricklaying instructors..

Courses Open To You After

This course can also be covered over 2 consecutive weekends should you have other commitments which prevent you from attending Monday – Friday.

If you are looking to attend more comprehensive training from the outset then you should consider our City & Guilds Bricklaying Course or even our NVQ Level 2 Bricklaying Course.

Our 5 day bricklaying courses will act as a great basis for work within the bricklaying industry but we do recommend that you consider additional training if you want to sustain a long term career as a Bricklayer.

This is a hands-on, practical tiling course and you will be involved at every stage and will be participating throughout. It is therefore recommended you bring suitable clothing and for your own safety, steel capped footwear is essential.
