Weekend Bricklaying Courses


Most bricklaying course providers are open 7 days a week which gives you the chance to learn your new skills at the weekend. This is perfect for those that are unable to train at the week due to full time work commitments.

The weekend bricklaying courses will be available over consecutive weekends meaning that you don’t have to complete the whole course in one weekend. They will all be hands on courses which will ensure you are involved from the start. It is recommended that you wear suitable clothing for weekend bricklaying courses and steel capped boots are an essential. After all, who wants to drop a brick on their toes?

Most training providers will provide you with all the tools and materials necessary to complete the course.

What you can expect to learn over the weekend course:

  • Introduction to bricklaying tools and what they are used for
  • How to butter brick joints
  • Mixing mortar
  • Trowel techniques
  • Demonstration of brick bonding
  • Theory of DPC and Cavity Insulation

So what’s next after a weekend bricklaying course? They can lead to qualifications within the industry from advanced bricklaying courses to a City and Guilds qualification.
