Think Brick Australia runs Brick and Block Cleaning Courses with CMAA, focusing on assisting those who are looking to obtain information on how to clean clay and concrete masonry, as well as treat stains on these walling systems. From 2023, brick and block cleaners across Australia can achieve industry recognised accreditation by completing this course.Please note that this is an industry recognised course and NOT the CPCCPD3029A Remove graffiti and apply protective coatings course.
The course covers working with contemporary bricks and blocks, planning and preparing a worksite, identifying brick and block stains, prevention of stains, techniques not to damage bricks and blocks, effective cleaning of brick and block stains, clean up and safe storage of equipment and chemicals, and using environmentally friendly cleaning solutions.

The brick and block cleaning course dates for 2024 are being confirmed. Perth, Adelaide, and Sydney will have courses operating in February.
In 2024 we will be offering the long stream (2 day) course which results in an industry-recognised accreditation, as well as the short stream (1 day) course. The short stream course does not result in accreditation, and is useful for builders, manufacturers, and brick layers. We are also offering a refresher course for existing accredited brick cleaners looking to renew their qualification.
The long stream course is 2 days long and provides a pathway to becoming a Think Brick Australia recognised accredited brick cleaner. It consists of theoretical and practical components. The short stream course goes for 4-5 hours over one day.
If you would like to gain an overview of the brick and block cleaning process, our online brick and block cleaning module could be an option for you. The introductory online module is useful for anyone with no prior knowledge or experience of brick and block cleaning. To access the online module click here.
We also deliver company presentations addressing specific issues of interest. These company specific presentations vary between 1 to 4 hours and provide general, detailed or a mixture of information on brick and block cleaning. You inform us what you are seeking, and we prepare the presentation accordingly.
