Masonry (Craft) Certificate

KNEC

Certificate 2 years

Overview

Masonry is the building of structures from individual units, which are often laid in and bound together by mortar. Masonry is generally a highly durable form of construction. However, the materials used, the quality of the mortar and workmanship, and the pattern in which the units are assembled can substantially affect the durability of the overall masonry construction.
