Cement Mason


A Cement Mason Program will teach a student how to finish all concrete constructions. Some of these constructions can include floors, walls, ceilings, sidewalks and curbs. The Cement Mason Program will usually take 3 years to complete.

A graduate of the Cement Mason Program can expect to understand the basics of design and control of all concrete mixtures. He/She will also be accustomed to using all of the most common power and hand tools that are used in cement masonry. This will allow the Cement Mason to be able to both construct and repair most concrete constructions.
