Easy! Get steady job growth, very good pay and excellent benefits from day one!

If you’re looking for a stable career in a skilled trade with good wages and benefits plus steady work, then OPCMIA is for you! Thanks to population growth, the construction of more schools, hospitals, homes and other buildings, employment of plasterers and cement masons is projected to grow much faster than average – 15% from 2014 to 2024.

Both the cement mason and plasterer apprenticeship is a three-year program with 144 hours of classroom training per year and 4000 hours of paid on-the-job training.

Apprentices earn living wages and receive full benefits from day one (health, vision, etc.).
