International Masonry Institute
The International Masonry Institute offers quality training for craftworkers, professional education for masonry contractors and free technical assistance to the design and construction communities. IMI is a strategic alliance between the International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers (BAC) and their signatory contractors to promote quality masonry construction. Team IMI consists of architects, engineers, construction managers, skilled craftworkers and instructors, offering what no other group can: expertise in training, craftsmanship, design, installation and marketing. That means buildings built by union craftworkers and contractors get built the right way. The Flynn Center in Maryland and regional centers offer training at all career levels, from apprentice to supervisor, in all the masonry crafts: brick/block, tile, terrazzo, marble, stone, restoration, plaster and cement, plus new products and systems.
