Masonry structures have stood the test of time with great precision and elegance dating back to the Pyramids and the Duomo by Brunelleschi. We are continuing the time honored tradition of apprenticeship. Skill’s are passed down from generation to generation with quality, pride and craftsmanship that is what really makes America Great!
This training program is intended to provide entry-level construction workers information about their rights, employer responsibilities, and how to file a complaint as well as how to identify, abate, avoid and prevent job-related hazards on a construction site.
