All short duration training courses fully accredited by and mapped to standards published by;

The ABC Assessment Centre’s Short Duration Training is just one of the reasons we set ourselves apart from other training providers. The 16 individual courses, which range from 0.5-2 days in length, cover all aspects of bricklaying; the combination of which makes for a fully comprehensive training curriculum recognised by both CITB and the British construction industry at large.

It’s true, we’ve gone the extra mile in our quest to deliver the best training for bricklayers. Not only are we a CITB Approved Training Organisation (ATO), but we took it upon ourselves to write new industry standards for areas of bricklaying that haven’t, until now, been standardised. They have been audited, approved and published on the CITB Training Directory as the point of reference when it comes to short-duration training for bricklayers in the UK.

Available courses see below.
