ABBTF has been assisting with this important work by facilitating three day workshops in Queensland and Western Australia. Local Subject Matter Experts led the work aimed at applying much needed changes to many units within the qualification. A major objective for the redesign of Certificate III in Brick/Blocklaying is to meet the latest industry needs and standards for more robust and consistent training delivery and assessment, nationwide.

Special emphasis has been given to local manufacturer’s specifications and guidelines particularly in the area of selecting, gauging, identifying, blending and cleaning of brickwork. Corrections and refinements have also been made in relation to damp and moisture proofing. This re-design work also includes some recommended changes to the structure of the qualification itself.
