    This bricklaying course was great value for the money Training at the weekends suited me very well Not many providers are actually open at the weekends.

  38. Kaled

    These kind of courses are pracitical, hands-on learning, so come prepared with your work clothes and steel toe-capped footwear. Almost everything else you require is provided, and in many cases the tools that you use are yours to take as soon as you leave. The instructors are get good at craftsmen who bring years of experience to your learning process, and the relatively small class sizes provide a greater opportunity for individualized attention.
