Journeymen Training

Training is the foundation upon which a skilled craft builds its reputation, and without a solid foundation a building will crumble and fall. That is why the OPCMIA maintains a host of training programs to support the plaster and concrete industry. Each program is carefully designed to maximize productivity, quality, safety, and opportunity. From our pre-apprenticeship partnership with the federal government's Job Corps program to our international network of registered apprenticeships to our journeymen upgrading and safety courses; each aspect of the OPCMIA training agenda is designed to support the ever changing needs of the industries we represent.
