Course details

It is preferred that you will have completed Able Skills Introductory Bricklaying course before moving on to this more advanced training option allowing you to build upon existing knowledge. This course will enable you to 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.

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 Intermediate Course to run:

Option One

  • Advanced cavity wall training module
  • Setting out accurately
  • Construction of inner & outer leaves of brick & block
  • Installation of DPC
  • Wall ties
  • Cavity closers & insulation
  • Traditional closing of reveals at openings
  • Forming a window opening
  • Installation of lintel & cavity tray
  • Soldier course to lintel

Option Two

  • Brick pier with mitred capping
  • Garden walling in Flemish or English bond / garden wall variants
  • Oversailing courses with Brick on edge capping or coping stone finish
  • Painting techniques; birds’ beak and weather struck

Option Three

  • Semi circular rough ring arch construction
  • One and half brick pier with double oversailing courses, with mitre brick on edge capping

We are not claiming to cover every single aspect of bricklaying in 5 days, but we do promise to provide you with very comprehensive bricklaying training and an excellent opportunity to progress further if you want. 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.
