Training is a big part of what makes the members of The Connecticut Trowel Trades Alliance the best in the industry. The International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers' apprenticeship and training system is widely recognized for producing highly skilled craftworkers. Through Local union programs and those offered through the International Masonry Institute, The Connecticut Trowel Trades Alliance members have access to training opportunities unmatched in the masonry industry.

Our training starts with a two to four year apprenticeship program. During these years members receive both classroom and on the job training. These classes serve as a solid foundation of the skills needed to provide a top quality product. It is from this foundation that they can hone their skills to provide the highest quality workmanship.

In addition to the initial training of our members; they are constantly taking new courses. Courses are always being offered to keep our members on the cutting edge of the masonry industry. Our members take courses to upgrade their skills and learn new building techniques; including utilizing environmentally friendly techniques otherwise known as the green movement. Consistently upgrading our member’s skills allows us to be the very best in the industry in which we work.
