Cement Masons & Plasterers


Scope of Work

Cement masons smooth and finish the surfaces of poured concrete floors, walls, sidewalks, and curbs, using hand and power tools. Plasterers typically apply coats of plaster to interior walls, ceilings, and partitions in buildings to produce finished surfaces. They can install or produce decorative panels, cornices, and moldings. You’ll also find them restoring elaborate historic buildings, and even working on sets for video and theatrical productions.

Length of Program

The apprenticeship generally spans 3 years or 3600 hours in length. Plasterers attend classes one day every 2 weeks while Cement Mason training is held during the winter months.
