Lastly, the fourth trimester will prepare the student for stone masonry.

Program Outcomes:

  2. Successful completion of the first trimester will be the first exit point earning a “Bricklayer’s Helper” certificate.
  3. The focus of the second trimester is laying block. Logically, this skill is needed in most building projects. Successful completion of the second trimester will earn a “Blocklayer” certificate.
  4. The third trimester student has the option of choosing to work toward a “Bricklayer” diploma or a “Stone Mason” diploma.  Upon successful completion of the third trimester, the student may pursue the second degree in the fourth trimester.
