The Arizona Masonry Council develops and implements programs to enhance and sustain a skills-based talent development network that meets the needs of employers, workers, job seekers, and learners for today and tomorrow.

APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAM

Apprenticeship helps to maintain the quality of the Masonry profession by providing certified skills through a standardized process.

Employers actively participating in Apprenticeship have a competitive advantage, as Apprenticeship establishes partnerships with employers and employees. It takes under-skilled or semi-skilled workers to the experienced level.

Apprentices receive formalized training under experienced supervision. They earn as they learn new and improved skills to become more competitive in the job market. A progressive wage schedule helps ensure they are receiving raises every six months (based on performance reviews). Apprentices graduate from this three-year program with increased job security and nationally recognized Journeyman credentials.

Employers have more satisfied customers due to increased quality of workmanship. A reservoir of skilled workers becomes available for future needs of the company, and their workforce becomes more flexible through higher skill diversification.

Costs are decreased through an increase in productivity and a graduated pay scale in proportion to skill levels.

Apprenticeship is a great recruiting tool and demonstrates an “I Care” attitude, improving employer-employee relations. Employees are more motivated, and turnover and absenteeism are reduced.

The Masonry Industry benefits from an increased number of skilled laborers. Apprenticeship fills the gaps that will inevitably occur in this challenging economy.  As we all know, cutbacks are currently on the rise and older masons are retiring. When enough employers invest in workforce development programs, future challenges can be overcome.

AMC has the most effective and efficient program in the state of Arizona, and now is the time to invest in our future workforce.

H.S. & TECH SCHOOL PROGRAMS

2019 was a very successful year for our High School training workshops. The Arizona Masonry Council was able to provide several weeks of training to multiple High Schools across the valley and the state. These training workshops provided support and journeyman level instruction to more than 200 students. Our AMC instructors provided great 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 next year.
