For the first time in Switzerland, our new training program “Earth builder” will offer to craftsmen and other interested parties the opportunity to acquire well-founded and structured knowledge, skills and competences in earth building. The courses should start in autumn / winter 2018. onwards. The participants can graduate for small manageable units of learning outcomes or a professional examination with a Swiss Federal Certificate.
Contents of the training are the basics of earth building, the different earth building techniques and the marketing of sustainable craftsmanship. The basis of the advanced training course “Earth builder” is the German course “Fachkraft Lehmbau” developed by Dachverband Lehm e.V.
A corresponding offer in the field of straw construction is under development in cooperation with the association straw + paille + paglia.
