ComSec Training provides numerous skills assessment services for trade occupations to get home building licences.
We can test anybody who can prove they have current trade level skills due to having worked in the industry. Training is aimed at helping tradesmen to get their skills recognised so they can get the formal Trade Qualification. You can get this qualification quite easily.
For the purpose of licencing, bricklaying is erecting structures by putting together numerous individual masonry units called a block or a brick.
A brick is a perforated or solid masonry unit used for building purposes such as paving or walling. Bricks are generally made in a rectangular prismatic shape in a size that you can pick up with one hand while the other applies mortar with a trowel.
A block is a component made from concrete, gypsum, clay or similar materials for use in making partitions or walls and is usually bigger than a brick. Blocks are usually perforated, have hollow cores or are autoclaved, aerated concrete to decrease the handling weight.
Work under the term “bricklaying” includes, but isn’t limited to:
- Construction of external and/or internal brick or block walls.
- Construction of brick or block staircases.
