Each year, the International Masonry Institute and the International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers offer plaster upgrade training to the membership. According to Owen Jones, Field Representative for the Wisconsin District Council, “Plaster membership has grown at a rapid pace, and there is a high demand for both new andrestoration plaster work.” Thanks to the training provided at the International Masonry Institute’s NationalTraining Center in Fort Ritchie, Maryland, and local training throughout Wisconsin, the design and construction industry is assured of a ready supply of trained craftworkers to perform all types of plaster construction.
