Quality Control.  When your association provides discounted rates on education, you are able to develop your own personal workforce and ensure the quality of the masonry products you install in Florida.  The MAF provides Masonry Certification Level I for mason contractors, masons in the field, industry professionals as well as building officials and engineers, and is currently working on Level II certification.   Additionally, through our partnership with the American Institute of Architects - Florida Caribbean Chapter we are educating architects and masonry specifiers by providing them with quality education that reinforces the benefits of masonry construction.

Preparing the next generation.The recent financial recession in Florida drove many mason contractors out of business, leaving experienced masons with only two choices: relocate their family to continue their career, or enter a new industry, not related to masonry construction.  Florida is facing a dire need for qualified masons of all levels. Additionally, retirement of the current skilled mason population threatens to decimate the industry over the next decade.  Recruiting, training and retaining the next generation of masons is vital to the health of the entire masonry industry.
