Start building your career in the construction industry and gain access to even more advanced qualifications. Keep moving forward in your trade. As artisan qualifications are listed on the South African National Critical Skills Shortage List, certified bricklayers are in high demand with many employment opportunities available.
Bricklaying provides an entry point into the broader field of building and civil construction – learners who attain this qualification can also progress to obtain the National Occupational Qualification: Construction Foreman. This qualification prepares the learner to operate as a bricklayer, whose main tasks revolve around laying bricks, and other types of building blocks, in bonding agents such as mortar, for the purpose of constructing, repairing or altering structures. Learners will gain sound theoretical knowledge in the fundamentals of bricklaying techniques and processes, while skills development will entail hands-on instruction and practical experience with tools, equipment and materials.
