Welcome to MN/ND Bricklayers & Allied Craftworkers Training Center 

Brick, PCC, Tile and Terrazzo workers are trained here at The BAC.


Taya Ortiz has completed her apprenticeship  and is officially a Journeyworker Pointer-Cleaner-Caulker (PCC) with the Bricklayers! In the 4 years of her apprenticeship with SPPS, she completed at least 4,500 hours in on-the-job training and 432 hours of classroom-based training – and she was the only woman in her cohort of 17 people.  Nice work, Taya! I know the whole department celebrates this major professional milestone with you!
