Our Training

Receive World-Class, Life-Changing Training and Education

When you are accepted into OPCMIA’s Job Corps program, you will:

Live in a dormitory on one of our 46 Job Corps sites across the country — hopefully, the one closest to your home.
Receive free room and board, and a small stipend from the federal government.
Gain an education in the basics of the cement mason or plaster crafts.
Receive training mirroring that provided in OPCMIA’s world-class Apprenticeship Programs.
Spend most of your time gaining hands-on experience in pouring concrete or doing plaster work at the Job Corps site and out in the community.
Receive help entering an OPCMIA apprenticeship program — where you can earn money while learning even more — if you complete Job Corps successfully.

The Job Corps program lasts between 8 and 12 months.

It’s a one-of-a-kind opportunity to transform your life and future prospects for the better!
