Charles “Chuck” Scroggs, of Rockwall County, Texas, serves as the president of Southwest Scaffolding, LLC, a business in the Rockwall County city of Rowlett. Chuck Scroggs stays current in the field of masonry through his association with the Masonry Contractors Association of America (MCAA).
One major component of the MCAA’s work is its certification program, which seeks to prevent inferior-quality contractors from damaging the credibility and quality of the masonry industry. Certification also allows customers to make more informed choices about the quality of the products and services they purchase.
To be eligible for certification, a key masonry business leader, such as an owner or CEO, must complete 75 hours of continuing education on topics like ethics and safety. All of the firm’s supervisors must complete at least 15 hours of continuing education activity as well. When all education courses have been completed, the primary individual must sit for a 100-question exam on all continuing education topics.
