Welcome to the BAC Local 1 Apprenticeship & Training Program
An apprenticeship was the first degreed program for learning a trade or for acquiring a skill-set and knowledge; long before the introduction of universities and colleges, apprenticeship was the means for getting an education.
BAC Local 1 of MD, VA and DC remains committed to training the safest and most industry savvy masons to meet the demands of the modern day construction regiment of schedules, codes and safety requirements.
Our training program cultivates the talent of our apprentices by instilling in them the essential mechanics of craft, setting them on the path to becoming skilled masons. We have also developed a number of classes that give the apprentices and journeyworkers a working knowledge of the technologies behind the modern wall systems, while emphasizing the masons’ responsibility in constructing them properly.
As materials, and or the products in our industry, continue to change, we maintain vigilance in keeping abreast of these changes by developing the training specific to maintaining the best hands in the business.
Our program is a Federal registered Apprenticeship program.
