Bricklaying Diploma Level 2

The job of a bricklayer is to construct the first shell of a building, whether it is a house, a school, a bridge or any other construction. Without a bricklayer, the building simply does not get made. On this course you will learn how to interpret drawings to set out structures, how to produce joint masonry and how to build solid walls and attach piers plus the all important health and safety aspects of the job.
