The Certificate III in Stonemasonry (Monumental/Installation) provides students with the skills of a Stonemason as identified on the Migration Occupations in Demand List.
*Stonemasonry is the craft of shaping rough pieces of rock into geometrical shapes, mostly simple, but some of considerable complexity, and then arranging the resulting stones to form structures. Stonemasons learn about stone types, their applications and best uses, and how to work and fix each stone in place. A stonemason is someone that is involved in working with masonry materials and stone.
They prepare and lay hard and soft stone, marble, concrete blocks or slabs and other materials that are involved in building or repairing stone structures,
walls or monumental masonry (an example of monumental masonry is stone work for cemeteries or ornamental carvings on stone).
Tuition fees: A$10,700 per annum.
