Academic and Career Advising
Brick Masons build walls, fireplaces, chimneys, arches, columns and other structures using brick, concrete, cinder block, stone, marble and other materials; the work is typically outdoors. Brick masons work to specific measurements and rigid specifications. The curriculum is developed by the National JATC and approved by the Federal Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training. This is a three year program requiring 6,000 hours of on-the-job training as well as 432 clock hours of related instruction.
The College provides classroom-related and supplemental instruction for apprenticeship programs. Classes are held in the days, evenings, and Saturdays, depending on the program. The College neither provides on-the-job training nor acts as a sponsor for apprentices. Individuals must locate their own sponsors. For individual industry-sponsored programs, students should contact their employers’ training director or the Apprenticeship Office.
The Department of Labor Office of Apprenticeship is the federal registering agency for all Utah programs. For National credentials, students and sponsors need to be registered with the Federal Office of Apprenticeship, 125 South State Street, Suite 2412, Salt Lake City, UT 84138. Sponsors are encouraged to be registered with the Office of Apprenticeship.
Apprenticeship students are expected to be employed while participating in related training course work.
