The NRMCA recently completed the popular annual Technical Short Course for 43 attendees at the RMC Foundation Education Center in Silver Spring, MD. Besides presentations from the NRMCA engineering division staff, guest speakers included Bill Brooks with Grace speaking on chemical admixtures and Ron Terrelonge with Aggregate Industries speaking on quality control.

Congratulations are due to the personnel obtaining the following certifications: 15 ACI Grade I Field Testing Technician; 11 ACI Flatwork Technician; 28 NRMCA Concrete Technologist Level 2 and 15 NRMCA Concrete Technologist Level 3. Ryan Scott with Essroc obtained the highest score on the Level 2 exam and Matt Dalkie with Lafarge obtained the highest score on the Level 3 exam. To quote Ozinga Chicago RMC President Lloyd Meyer, "The courses I’ve taken at the NRMCA - and there have been many -have been some of the best in my professional development and the Short Technical Course was the best of the best. You set high standards in the course and should continue to maintain those standards."

NRMCA has scheduled the next regional technical short course in Sacramento, CA, for February 18-22, 2013. The course is co-sponsored by CalCima. Space restrictions will limit the attendees to about 40, so industry personnel interested in attending are encouraged to register soon.
