This packet consists of the instructor and trainee manuals for two courses: practices and procedures of mason tending I and II. The instructor manual for mason tending I contains a schedule for a 40-hour, 5-day course and instructor outline. The outline provides a step-by-step description of the instructor's activities and includes answer sheets to accompany questions on information presented in films, examples, homework assignments, answer sheets to exercises, and directions for hands-on activities. The trainee manual for mason tending I is divided into seven sections. Each section may contain some or all of these components: a list of objectives, terms and definitions, instructional or informational materials, exercises, and worksheets. The sections cover these topics: safety, project planning, scaffold erection, estimating and proper stocking techniques, mortar and grout mixing, tending the mason, and housekeeping and job shutdown. Appendixes include a main glossary and types of bricks. The instructor manual for mason tending II begins with a schedule for a 32-hour, 4-day course. It has the same format as the other manual but also includes an equipment and material list. The trainee manual is divided into six sections: safety; rough terrain forklift operation; masonry saw operation; mortar, grout, and additives; masonry reinforcement; and advanced scaffolding techniques. It follows the same format as the mason tending I course. A glossary of terms is appended. (YLB)
