About Specific LimeWorks.us Workshop Programs

Who are the trainers and what certificates are offered?

Most all of the standard workshops are taught by the Technical Install Team from LimeWorks.us using the LimeWorks.us product line. Some workshops are taught by specialists in certain masonry art forms as we bring them in on an occasional or a regular basis. Each workshop participant receives a Certificate of Completion mailed to them within two weeks of the program. If the program is for “Certified Installer” or “Certified Trainer” status then the participant who successfully passes the validated training program associated with the products will receive a corresponding certificate which states that they have successfully passed the class and the term for which they are authorized to install or train on products. Certified Installer status may be required on projects where a historic preservation specification was put into place by an Historic Preservation Architect that requires only Certified Installers who have attended our training program which meets ASTM E-2659 Standard Practice for a Certificate Program to be able to bid on the project or be allowed to install the specialized LimeWorks.us products. This level of scrutiny is suggested to architects in order to insure that the products are installed to the highest industry standards. Trainer status is only given to those who have previously become a Certified Installer of a certain product and have passed the “Certified Trainer Program.” The Certified Trainer Program is also a validated program which is monitored by the LimeWorks.us staff and meets the ASTM E-2659 Standard Practice for a Certificate Program to test and approve that the Trainer also properly conducts the training class in the manner which the program is designed to be taught.

Companies or organizations with 10 or more participants may qualify for the MAS-01 (Basics of Repointing Brick & Stone Using Lime Mortar) training program at their location. We'll work around your schedule too! Call 215-536-1776 for details.

If any professional masonry company or organization gathers a group of at least 10 participants we will schedule the MAS-01 or MAS-06 program at the group’s chosen location anywhere in the USA if the full $1000 per participant price is paid for the 10 or more participants. The participating company will be credited to receive the full $10,000 value of redeemable LimeWorks.us products if the products are obtained within one year of the workshop. This credit can also be broken out to individuals so that each who paid $1000 can receive the $1000 credit toward materials under the same conditions. This offer in essence makes the workshop free for historic masonry restoration companies or groups that can assemble 10 or more interested parties to have these programs brought to them.
