Apprenticeship Training

Bricklayers must complete a four-year apprenticeship training program. The program exposes apprentices to all skills necessary to become a Bricklayer/PCC. Pre-Apprenticeship training covers all skills necessary to be a first-year apprentice through eight 40-hour weeks of hands-on learning. Pre-apprenticeship training is held in March and April. Related training in bricklaying, blueprint reading, and safety is also provided. This related training is split into four one-week classes in the months of December-March each year during the four-year Apprenticeship.
