NRMCA Provides Update on Technical Courses Schedule
The NRMCA Concrete Durability Course scheduled for August 20-23, 2018 has been cancelled. The next course will be scheduled in Spring 2019 at a location to be determined. The NRMCA Annual Concrete Technologist Training and Certification program (Short Course) is scheduled for November 5-9, 2018, at the RMC Research & Education Foundation Center in Silver Spring, MD. Registration is open and the course is filling up. Due to space restrictions, the number of registrants is limited to 40. Interested persons are encouraged to register early!
The Technical Short Course provides a fundamental understanding of concrete, aggregates and concrete making materials; requirements in industry codes and standards and proportioning concrete mixtures. Attendees have the opportunity to obtain industry-recognized NRMCA certifications: NRMCA Level 2 and 3 Concrete Technologist certification and an optional NRMCA Grade II Field Testing Technician certification. The NRMCA Short Course is intended for quality, sales and other personnel with a technical role with ready mixed concrete companies and suppliers to the industry. New hires in these roles can also benefit from attending. A significant amount of technical content is covered in four days that requires the attendees to have a basic concrete technology background and at least a high-school level of math.
