Mason Tenders’ Training Fund Live
Instructor Led Online Training Courses

As it would be less than responsible under the current conditions to conduct classes in the conventional manner at the school in Long Island City, your Training Fund has found a way to provide you with live Instructor led online training in many of the courses that you and many other members want and need.  And you can do it from home through a method of distance learning.

Through the Zoom platform, members can enter a virtual classroom with a live video view of their Instructor and other class participants, interact with them, ask questions, and more.  In effect, you are in the classroom. And, you can use your home computer, iPad or other tablet, or even your cellphone! All of these devices work with Zoom.

All class registration will be done via email
