The New Zealand Masonry Trades Association is the industry association for brick and blocklayers.

Training specifically for brick and blocklayers

The New Zealand Masonry Trades Association (NZMTA) is a member of the Brick and Blocklayers Federation.

Together we work to identify training needs and opportunities for brick and blocklaying companies.  As an industry, we recognise that we need to start helping our brick and blocklayers form professional, complaint, profitable busineses that train apprentices and deliver quality building systems.

Any company that hires masons such as brick and blocklayers may register with the NZMTA at a cost of $500+GST per year.

This provides the company access for all employees to the NZMTA Seminar series and the use of NZMTA resources and templates. 

NZMTA in conjunction with BBFNZ provides training workshops for members.  Contact NZMTA ( to find out about seminars in your area.

By being an NZMTA member you are also financially contributing to the work of BBFNZ - read more about it in this flyer here: NZMTA Good guys flyer.
