RESIDENTIAL BRICK LAYING PROGRAM

Welcoming the newest program to Skilled Trades College – Residential Brick Laying – this third-party funded program was designed to allow participants to master the skill of preparing and laying brick, structural tiles, concrete block, stone, and relevant masonry work. At the end of this program participants will be ready to launch themselves as a skilled entry-level masonry apprentice.
