Ways/Methods of Training We Provide

Training is generally imparted in two ways:

  • On the job training–  The motto of such training is “learning as you earn.”  Apprentices are trained at the work site while he or she is doing the actual job. A Journeyman serves as the hands-on trainer for the Apprentice providing support guidance in the practical application towards mastering their skills.

  • Related (Classroom) training– Related training is crucial for our Apprentices and Journeymen.  Classroom training is at the Mason Trades Building.  Many times, related training duplicates the actual working conditions.  The classroom setting allows Apprentices to pay more attention to the activities and projects.  Thus, making them more confident when returning back to the job site.
