Craft training is performed through the International Masonry Training and Education Foundation (IMTEF)
Stone is one of the oldest building materials and has been used for both iconic structures and personal residences. It can be used as part of the cladding for the building exterior as well as interior partitions, wall applications, floors and landscaping.
The International Masonry Institute (IMI) is a strategic alliance between the International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers and the contractors who employ those members. Through education, technical support, research and training the IMI works to provide a more efficient construction delivery system.
