Project: Brick and Block / Stonemasonry

Stage 5

The Bricklaying/Blocklaying and Stonemasonry Project includes the review of the following three qualifications:

  • CPC30111 Certificate III in Bricklaying/Blocklaying
  • CPC31611 Certificate III in Paving
  • CPC32313 Certificate III in Stonemasonry (Monumental/Installation)



Thankyou to everyone who has provided input into this project. This project is currently with the State Training Authorities for support prior to submission to the February 2020 AISC meeting.


Proposed Changes 

The new Certificate III in Stonemasonry will drop ‘Monumental/Installation’ from its title.

The paving qualification has had no completions in recent years, and there is widespread industry agreement that this qualification is redundant. Certificate III in Paving is to be deleted, with the following paving units available as a specialisation within Certificate III in Bricklaying and Blocklaying:  

  • CPCCPA3001A  Prepare subgrade, base and bedding course for segmental paving
  • CPCCPA3002A  Lay segmental paving
  • CPCCPA3003A  Cut segmental paving
  • CPCCPA3004A  Finish segmental paving
  • CPCCPA3005A  Maintain and repair segmental paving.

New units created 

  • CPCCST2007 Use stonemasonry tools, plant and equipment
  • CPCCST3023 Apply drawing principles to stonemasonry
  • CPCCST3024 Apply conservation principles and practices to heritage stonework
  • CPCCST3025 Carry out basic stonemasonry demolition

Work safely unit

CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry has been added as a core unit to both qualifications.
