Workforce Development Programs
Apprenticeship helps to maintain the quality of the Masonry profession by providing certified skills through a standardized process. Programs are available in Central, Southern, and Northern Arizona.

This program includes both hands-on and classroom instruction. Objectives include basic hydraulics, mechanical, pneumatic, electrical, and electrical control systems.
AMC is launching English classes built specifically for the masonry industry. There will be three levels of courses with different learning objectives.
Classes will be scheduled for 6-week blocks. Courses to be held at EVIT - 1601 West Main St., Mesa, AZ 85201. Participants will be given an assessment and placed in the proper level.
In less than three years, AMC's goal is to have this certification as part of all specs in the state of Arizona - we'll be educating General Contractors, Home Builders, Architects, Engineers and Owners of the importance of this program.
High School and Tech School Programs
The Arizona Masonry Council provides several weeks of training to multiple High Schools across the valley and the state each year. These training workshops provide support and journeyman level instruction to more than 200 students annually. Our AMC instructors provide valuable feedback and direction to the High School instructors on lesson plans and lab schedule formats. It is our goal to continue to grow and develop these workshops each year.
