Classroom lessons

Theory lessons in French

The following classroom lessons in French have been prepared for the training of masons in Haiti in 2011. They were used to accompany the practical training to make students understand better what they were doing on the building sites.

These lessons should be given by  experienced and practice-minded trainers. The "Cours complet annoté" provides explanations for the trainers on each slide.

Theory lessons in Spanish

In 2016 the lessons were reviewed, translated into Spanish and adapted to the Ecuadorian context, rules and regulations. This work of adaptation is an important step as the recommendations contained in the lessons must reflect the local availability of building materials and the local building codes.
