How much space do I need at my home for my Class?
You need approximately 5 ft. by 5 ft. for your set-up (minimum). Students have taken the course in their basement, garage, carport, back yard, or in a spare room in their house or apartment.
When I have completed the Class, how do I become Brick Certified?
We require the student to be able (at a minimum) to complete the following:
- Lay (128) modular bricks in one hour or less.
- Lay (42) 6x8x16 concrete masonry units, CMU, in one hour or less.
- Build a brick chimney or brick pier that is 2 foot x 2 foot square. Lay 100 modular brick using a 4 foot builders lever in 2 hours or less, as well as all brick corners.
If you are located in a state with one of our “in person schools”, you can get tested at the site by one of our certified instructors. The majority of our online students are not located in one of these areas so we permit them to send in photo and/or video proof of the completed projects (we have many who have done this, you can see some of their videos on this site) along with a witness signature showing the time the projects were completed in, as well as proof of identity of the person taking the certification.
Do I have to get Brick Certified to get a Job?
No, you don’t. As a matter of fact, we have had many students create planter boxes, repair chimneys, bricked-in mailboxes, build barbecue pits, and fences with only 3 days of hands-on training. See our testimonials for more details. Many students want to work for themselves and start their own business. We also offer contracting classes on starting your own Masonry business soon.
