Demolition is a very skilled job and once qualified you can spend your days blowing up or pulling down old and disused buildings. It involves working with power tools and cranes, and you will have expert knowledge in health and safety issues. A head for heights and love of the outdoors is essential.
At Leeds College of Building we do not have a specific course for demolition, although you can get into it by studying one of our vocational courses, for example the Construction & Built Environment Diploma or the General Construction Operations.
