This qualification reflects the trade qualified role of a bricklayer, blocklayer or paver who may have responsibility for undertaking heritage bricklaying, refractory bricklaying, bricklaying, blocklaying and paving work in residential, industrial and commercial contexts, in both existing and new constructions.
Completion of the bksb (Basic Key Skills Builder) online literacy and numeracy assessment prior to enrolment, unless the student has completed an equal or higher level course.
There are no other specific entry requirements for this qualification, however a strong grasp of basic Mathematics is very beneficial to grasping the course content.
Completion of the general construction induction training program, specified in the Safe Work Australia model Code of Practice: Construction Work, is required by anyone carrying out construction work. Achievement of CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry meets this requirement.
VET Student Loans may be available for eligible students in approved Diploma level qualifications. The loan can be used towards Tuition Fees only and does not cover additional expenses such as textbooks, uniforms, equipment, travel, tools, and accommodation or general living expenses. Loan limits or caps may apply for some eligible courses and where a loan limit is reached for a course, students may be required to pay upfront for any remaining units.

The nominal duration of the bricklaying apprenticeship is considered to be 48 months, however the expected duration is 42 months.
To achieve a reasonable rate of progression and completion within the expected duration (42 months) it is anticipated an apprentice would achieve 25% of all competencies required for the qualification within every 10.5 month period of the apprenticeship.
Ultimately the rate of progression of an apprentice will depend largely on the following factors:
1. Time spent by the apprentice being trained on-site in actual bricklaying tasks (i.e., not just labouring)
2. Employers range of work
3. Apprentice (individual) natural ability learning/mastering the skills required
To a lesser extent the time spent completing face-2-face training in an off-site simulated environment will also be relevant – but this is mainly related to learning practical skills and building knowledge regarding construction techniques that the apprentice is not readily exposed to on-site. For example, masonry arches are rarely used in modern building design, and therefore construction techniques and related skills will be developed and taught pre-dominantly during off-site, face-2-face training.
