This unit specifies the skills and knowledge required to construct masonry walls and corners to different types and styles of buildings.
This unit applies to bricklayers and blocklayers who construct masonry walls and corners on new or existing structures. It is suitable for people operating with some autonomy. A person working at this level would be expected to take responsibility for organising and completing tasks assigned to them without needing close supervision.
Completion of the general construction induction training program specified by the model Code of Practice for Construction Work is required for any person who is to carry out construction work. Achievement of CPCCWHS1001Prepare to work safely in the construction industry meets this requirement.
Assessment tasks will be designed to reinforce and extend knowledge and skill competence within set and controlled parameters in accordance with each unit’s learning outcomes and performance criteria requirements, including the setting of work based practical application tasks designed to provide evidence of competence outcomes, within periodic and scheduled timelines.
Students will be expected to demonstrate the following required skills:
*construct both walls between a profile at one end and a hand built corner at the other
*incorporate an external and internal corner and a stopped end to both walls
*comply with allowable tolerances in Australian Standards and building codes for construction of both walls
*comply to the brickwork tolerances stated in the current Australian Standards and codes.
The qualified trainer and assessor will provide teaching and learning materials as required in the form of workbooks produced by the Polytechnic and/or via the Polytechnic e-learning system.
