Education & Professional Development

Due to popular demand, Master Builders of Iowa has scheduled two more classes of Blueprint Reading Essentials - in Iowa City on October 23rd and in Waterloo on September 30th.  In this course, participants will gain the skills necessary to read and understand typical construction documents - blueprints and specifications.  Topics of the course will include plan reading, code review plans, civil plans, architectural plans, terminology, elevations, structural drawings, and much more.

In the competitive construction industry, it pays in loyalty and quality to invest in training and professional development. Years of experience and on-the-job training can provide crucial knowledge to perform tasks at hand, but the best professionals constantly seek to learn about new technologies and techniques to improve their performance on site and in the office.

MBI's mission is to be the essential resource for improving member performance and promoting a business environment favorable to the construction industry and continued learning opportunities are a critical component of MBI's mission to provide value to its members. We encourage you to spend a little time on the educational offerings page to view some of the wide range of educational, professional development, and training opportunities that MBI offers.
