LEARN TO BUILD WITH MUD BRICKS  

  • Learn to build a home, a shed, a garden room, a wall, a community building
  • Study from home, any time -100 hour self paced course
  • Course developed by people who have actually built earth construction buildings
  • We have been teaching mud brick construction since the early 1980's

Mud Brick Construction aims to develop an understanding of how to approach building with mud bricks. Mud brick building is also known by the alternative name 'adobe'. There are other ways of building with mud brick apart from 'adobe' (also covered briefly in this course). 

Mud Brick Building is relatively Foolproof.
If you know how to make the right type of mud, and how to use it; even unskilled builders who don't have much of an eye for detail, can still build in mud brick!

BECOME A PROJECT MANAGER


Learn established and well trusted project management processes to ensure successful project outcomes.

  • Plan, Manage and (on completion) Review Projects
  • Understand technical and human resources, marketing, and other aspects of a project
  • Apply these skills to property development, mining, agricultural, engineering, events or other projects
  • Enhance your employability across a wide range of industries

Don't waste time studying theory-heavy courses; while this course covers all the theory you will need, it also requires study of real world project management examples, and teaches you to think like a Project Manager!
 
Developing project management skills is valuable; these skills can be applied to all industries, and in all sorts of situations.

This course is just as relevant to a construction project as it is to managing a new product launch.  It is best suited to someone who has some prior experience or training in management, but is also useful as an adjunct to management studies.
