Two of Mosser Construction’s talented bricklayer apprentices recently participated in the MCAA (Mason Contractors Association) of America Skills Challenge. The event coincided with the open house of the new bricklayers training facility in Amherst, Ohio.
Contestants are divided by experience level, “First Years” who are just entering the trade through “Third Years” for those just entering the workforce as journeymen. Mike Roberts, First Year Apprentice, and Jon Weininger, Second Year Apprentice, each participated in their individual levels of the contest.
Each level is given a project to build commensurate to their skill level. The contestant must build their respective projects without having seen the drawings prior to the contest. They are not given any time to practice and cannot consult with their instructor or anyone else throughout the contest. They have three hours to complete the project with the materials provided to them.
One of these two talented apprentices took home first place in their category and will be headed to Las Vegas in January 2018 to compete in the Bricklayer 500
