Modular training in dry stone wall construction:
The aim of the modular training course in dry stone wall construction is to teach the craft of dry stone walling in the basic fields of activity. At the end of the training, participants should be able to build dry stone walls themselves, manage simple dry stone wall construction sites and assist in planning. The modular training course was developed by the Swiss Association of Dry Stone Masonry (SVTSM) and is accompanied by the Association romande des métiers du patrimoine Bâti (ARoMPB) and was financially supported by the Interreg project "Transmission des savoir-faire traditionnels du bâti". The registration procedure as well as the course infrastructure is carried out in cooperation with ser sanu future learning ag, Biel. The module grid gives an overview of the entire modular structure of the training and the conditions up to the examination. The modules listed below are those of level 1. The more advanced modules of level 2 are still being developed. Furthermore, the Swiss Association of Dry Stone Bricklayers and its partners, together with other professional associations and in collaboration with the Swiss Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training (SFIVET), are in the clarification phase on the development of a federal diploma.
