Bricklaying and Tilesetting Apprenticeship

Bricklaying and Tilesetting involves the installation of brick and tile on both interior and exterior building projects. Tasks often vary in complexity and can include building and repairing walls, floors, partitions, chimneys, fireplaces and other similar structures.

Workers often start out as Apprentices, working their way up to full Journeyman status with the eventual opportunity to become supervisors or business owners. Journeymen will often specialize in a certain aspect of the trade and many are self-employed.

Bricklayers and Tilesetters must be dependable, have a strong work ethic and possess basic skills in math and drawing.
