Certification: Historic Masonry Preservation Certificate Program (HMPC)

As the list of historic buildings and structures increases, so does the demand for qualified masons who have the necessary skill and knowledge to preserve them. Traditional craft skills and contemporary repair techniques are critical to the preservation of historic buildings and structures. To assure understanding and compliance related to masonry restoration and historic preservation, IMI and the International Masonry Training Education Foundation (IMTEF) offers the HMPC. The program gives members of the International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers (BAC) integrated knowledge in historic masonry preservation.
