Industry Groups Develop Masonry Training Program

NCCER (the National Center for Construction Eduction and Research) has partnered with the Mason Contractors Association of America (MCAA) to create a jointly-endorsed masonry training and certification program. NCCER and MCAA will adapt NCCER's current industry-standardized curricula and assessments for the program.

The long-term goal of the partnership is to advance masonry workforce development nationally and to utilize the expertise of both organizations to develop and deliver comprehensive masonry training throughout North America and the world.

NCCER and MCAA will also work together to promote masonry training at secondary and post-secondary education levels that meet industry standards, ensuring seamless articulation between Secondary Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs and Post-secondary Technical College programs.
