Bricklaying at Nirimba TAFE

Bricklaying at Nirimba College

SkillsOne heads to Nirimba College to learn about their bricklaying course. We chat to Rudi Meuwissen, Head Teacher in Building Finishes, to find out just what's involved in the course.

He shows us through the new large facility - where he shows us the various projects students are undertaking in the course.

Brock Salter, a bricklaying student, shares his project with us. He shows us the tools involved in Bricklaying.

As bricklayers may be required to repair older buildings, they need to learn both traditional and modern bricklaying techniques.

Those studying bricklaying learn how to lay bricks and blocks using different bonds. The course also covers how to construct ornamental panels, feature walls, arches and columns.
