Patrick Rand (right) and George Arnold of “Specified Materials” conducted the Module Five “Mastering the Details of Masonry Construction” class in Greensboro with some sixty participants. The August class is Professor Rand’s ninth time teaching the module, having been an instructor in the certification program since the program’s inception in 2006.
