Seminar & Workshop Offerings
Masonry Educators’ Workshop (MEW) – The MEW is a forum for faculty who are teaching masonry, or will be teaching masonry, to learn about the design, specification, construction, and evaluation of masonry. Effective and innovative ways to teach this information to their students are discussed. The goal of MEW is simple: to assist professors teaching masonry so that students, who will be future designers and construction managers, are comfortable using masonry on their projects.
Masonry Testing Technician Training Programs – These programs are intended to recognize qualified technicians performing various masonry tests, while helping to ensure testing is performed properly. To help prepare testing technicians for the Certification Examinations, The Masonry Society offers intensive education review sessions and the ACI Certification Examinations.
Special Inspection of Structural Masonry Construction – This seminar is aimed at helping inspectors, engineers and building officials identify and check key quality assurance items on the job site and is perfect for those preparing to take the ICC/TMS Structural Masonry Structural Inspectors examination.
