Vocational
Masonry

Masonry is the field of construction that works with concrete, brick, stone or tile, along with mortar to build a structure. Masons most commonly work on erecting walls, and the most common materials in masonry are brick and concrete.

Students seeking a masonry career have many different educational options. Many employers, trade schools and masonry organizations offer on-the-job training and apprenticeships, which take several years to complete. Students may enter a masonry program at a vocational school, which can take from one to two years to complete.

Masonry training can include learning about construction safety and how to use masonry equipment and learning how to construct walls, arches, chimneys and fireplaces. Students take courses that teach how to work with materials like glass, veneers and general paving skills.

Regular duties for masons include preparing a site by setting forms to hold concrete or brick, and will then be responsible for leveling and floating the concrete. Masons will edge the concrete, and even work with finishing the concrete, whether creating a smooth even look, or adding pebbles or gravel to the concrete.
