In Virginia, a skilled mason can expect to earn more than $40,000 annually. Workers can get their education in a manner of ways, including technical school, community college, registered apprenticeship programs and industry training programs.
Boxley is part of the Blue Ridge Masonry Association, an organization dedicated to promoting the industry and developing the skilled labor force the region needs to meet demand. This year we hosted two seven-week Masonry 101 courses to promote the trade in both our Roanoke and Lynchburg locations.
We further promote the trade through our membership with the Southeast Concrete Masonry Association, which provides many resources to further the industry throughout the entire region.
Boxley is also backing the Virginia Masonry Association’s Masonry Apprenticeship Training Program, a three-year accredited program recently approved by the state.
