  • Bricklayer Apprentices must accumulate 7200 hours of work experience and in-school training to complete their Apprenticeship.

Interprovincial Journeyperson’s Certificate

Once all Apprenticeship training has been completed, the Apprentice may then take the Journeyperson’s Exam (Administered by the Department of Advanced Education, Skills and Labour)

Upon successful completion of this exam, the Apprentice then becomes a “Journey person” and is qualified to work anywhere across Canada as a Certified Bricklayer or Concrete Finisher.
