Module #1: Primary - Basic Stone Masonry Walls and Floors
Stone Masonry Career Course Including Small Business Training for those who want it. (These are the only two courses that provide the Business Training. and overall basic stonemasonry. Both Mod. one and two should be taken back to back to provide time to get the complete basic training.)
Learn the basics of stonework in Module # 1 and # 2 plus small business training for those that want it. in these two comprehensive one week courses. It is a good one for those that want to learn a lot about stonework in a hurry. In the Basic # 1 you will learn how to do stone floors (patio’s, sidewalks etc.) and also to do stone faced walls over existing wood or masonry walls. Though it is hard to believe students not only learn to do enough stone masonry to do small projects for themselves or to earn money doing them for others. And at the same time they can also learn how to start and operate their own small business doing stone masonry if they want to. The hands on instruction really helps with this. Once they get the hang of it all they need is practice. Once they finish the course they can practice on projects at home, or begin making money doing projects for their new customers. Some may wish to work as an employee or apprentice for a Stonemasonry company for a while to get more experience. There is such a shortage of real stone masons right now that work shouldn't be difficult to find .....and there is also a shortage of jobs for many people... so the two should solve each others problem! Once students learn the basics they could either work for someone else or become self employed. If already in business they could add this new skill to their repertoire. Your business or job will be as good as the effort you put into it . Once you finish the course you can practice on projects at home, or begin making money doing projects for your new customers. Because of the fear of flying and the high cost of fuel nowadays people are not into traveling like they used to, so they are putting more money into fixing up their homes and yards. With your new talent those dollars can travel right into your bank account.

Be sure to bring your hiking shoes, fishing rod, golf clubs and camera to enjoy the beautiful Kootenays in your free time.
