Marble Setters, Tile Setters, and Terrazzo Workers
If you want to apply for jobs in these three trades, you should
be at least 17 or 18 years old to qualify for apprenticeship
programs. You should also have graduated from high school or have
received a GED. Take at least some courses that involve using hand
tools, reading blueprints, and taking precise measurements. Other
courses that will be helpful include general math and core English.
Taking art courses will increase your knowledge and perception of
colors (which is helpful in the marble and tile trades), and many
vocational courses will help you improve your manual dexterity. In
addition, since being in good physical condition is often necessary
in these jobs, participate in sports and general physical education
