New National Standards
Journal: January - February 2001
Identified as a top priority by the BAC Apprenticeship and Training Task Force, a comprehensive overhaul of national BAC apprenticeship standards is now complete and registered with the U.S. Department of Labor. The new standards will provide both policy and concrete guidelines for quality training programs throughout the BAC/IMI training network, in all BAC crafts: brick and block, tile, terrazzo, marble/marstone, pointing/cleaning/caulking, plaster and cement masonry, and all finisher categories. They address recruitment, employment, training, supervision, and record keeping. “These efforts will provide advantages not only to current training participants, but will also help us with recruitment and retention,” said BAC President John J. Flynn.
