This course is an introduction to working with concrete and concrete blocks. It was originally written as part of the Pacific Basic Trades Training programme. It has been contextualised for Tuvalu by local teachers to meet the needs of school leavers and community groups who have limited knowledge or experience of concrete work. Specifically, the course covers the following four modules: Choosing concrete, Mix and lay concrete, Introduction to blocks, and Build with blocks.
