BAC - Metro Detroit Training Center

The International Masonry Training and Education Foundation provides training, certifications and continuing education programs to members of the International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers. These programs begin with pre-apprenticeship training and related training instruction (RTI) for BAC apprentices, and continue throughout a craftworker’s career in brick, stone, tile, marble, terrazzo, pointing-caulking-cleaning, refractory, plaster, cement and mosaic work. New cladding systems and installation technologies are also emerging, and IMTEF provides advanced training for these opportunities as well. IMTEF is funded through a grant from the International Masonry Institute, a labor-management organization created by the members of BAC and the contractors who employ them.
