Plastering and Cement Masonry Apprenticeship

Plaster and cement masonry involves working with concrete and flatwork; roadwork, bridges, and dams; interior and exterior stucco EFIS wall finishing; and artisan finishes.

Continued job growth is expected in this field, as cement is used more frequently in construction projects. Cement masons can often work overtime for premium pay because once concrete is placed, the job has to be finished. With additional education, plasters and cement masons can go on to manage projects or practice their trade independently.
