There’s no better way to break into the building trade than with a general building course. We have plenty to choose from. We offer brick laying, plastering, screed & concreting, landscaping, and we can even teach how to make concrete beams as is done in most of Europe now.
Our brick laying course will show you how to correctly lay bricks and the methods used by professionals. Some are laying a thousand bricks a day. It started from humble beginnings which we will show you in this comprehensive course. Our instructor has over twenty five year on site experience laying bricks and still does today. We are fortunate enough that he has agreed to share his skills part time. He earns less money teaching than laying!
Plastering is a skill that takes time and experience to master. We show you all the correct technique and how to mix and what consistencies are required. We show you how to apply coats, set times, everything you need to become a great plaster. Once you’ve finished your course with us you’ll be ready to plaster and you’ll be ready to gain experience on building sites. You’ll be ready to be a hand for a plasterer and then help him finish up.
Rendering is almost identical to plastering with the exception that you are finishing with sand cement, not plaster. The finish will be a base internally or a clean finish outside. We will teach you best methods and experiences to show you how to produce brilliant results every time.
Screed & concreting’
Have you ever wondered how concrete floor specialists make floors so level so quickly. In our short two week course you’ll be able to lay concrete neatly and accurately. With special tips and secret tricks from professionals with decades of experience you’ll get the hang of this valuable skill in no time.
It’s often overlooked but finishing a home for a customer involves landscaping. They may well hire a specialist team but you’ll be the one who runs all pipework before, and you’ll be the one who sets out the structure for them. In this course you’ll learn how to turn a plan into the real thing.
How to make concrete beams
The use of rebar and concrete to make structures is widespread in Europe. Almost all builds for example in Span and Portugal are made with concrete and brick is just a filler. You’ll learn the correct depths and rebar to use to make a strong two level building. You’ll be shown how to make the metal frame and work from the engineering plan provided to you.
