JATC Apprentice Program

Turning Apprentices into Rock-Solid Pros

Union masons are trained and certified through the Joint Apprenticeship Training Committees (JATC). The JATC was established to provide a structured curriculum including both classroom and on-the-job training, in order to ensure that union masons become the very best in their craft.
