About Masonry


Masonry is the building of structures from individual units, which are often laid in and bound together by mortar; the term masonry can also refer to the units themselves.

Masonry Construction provides the opportunity to develop the skills of a proficient mason, from the simple spreading of mortar to the complex construction of an inside fireplace. These skills are developed by practice projects, which are preceded by theory lectures and demonstrations.

The common materials of masonry construction are brick, building stone such as marble, granite, and limestone, cast stone, concrete block, glass block, and adobe. Masonry is generally a highly durable form of construction. However, the materials used, the quality of the mortar and workmanship, and the pattern in which the units are assembled can substantially affect the durability of the overall masonry construction. 

This craft certificate in masonry course will introduce you to the masonry trade including its history, the essential considerations of masonry materials, tools, and equipment, as well as drawings and measurements used in the field. By the end of the course, you will have improved your professional skills and be much more prepared to grow your career in masonry.

Since a large part of masonry work is decorative as well as functional, special emphasis is placed on appreciation of the beauty and permanence of brickwork and on the development of pride in good workmanship.
Students find employment in the field as masons, and, with experience, as forepersons or superintendents. Many masons are self-employed.
