Masonry Career Training Database is Online!

By

The masonry industry finally has a source for pre-apprenticeship and apprenticeship training programs with the launch of the Masonry Career Training database at masoncontractors.org. Instructors, Promotional Directors, and School Administrators nationwide have been working with the MCAA to compile profiles of the most effective and successful training programs our industry offers. All the programs listed on the site have been screened by MCAA?s Director of Workforce Development, Melissa Polivka, and have committed to exclusively posting with this site. By uniting behind this comprehensive resource for students searching for training options, the industry will profit from sending a clear message and professional image, as well as ensure that the masons of tomorrow are being trained properly.

In the coming weeks and months, additional programs will be listed on the site, with an ultimate goal of having at least one training program featured in each state. MCAA is also working with the Canadian Masonry Contractors Associations to expand the site internationally. Students who visit the Masonry Career Training database, actively being promoted through the ?Check Out a Career in Masonry? High School program, will find detailed information about the training offered in their area, including graduation requirements, tuition, and enrollment dates. The featured programs will enjoy increased attendance, contractor awareness, and industry support.
