NRMCA Hosts Middle East Concrete Technology Forum in Dubai

NRMCA, in partnership with Grey Matters Consultancy, hosted the International Concrete Technology Forum, Middle East, in Dubai last week. The conference brings researchers and practitioners together to discuss the latest advances, technical knowledge, continuing research, tools and solutions for concrete manufacturing, design and construction. The conference featured speakers from all over the world, including NRMCA’s Lionel Lemay and Colin Lobo. The conference, which alternates as the International Concrete Sustainability Conference or Technology Forum, has been hosted by NRMCA in the U.S. annually since 2006, Latin America starting this year and in the Middle East since 2010. 

During the event, the very first set of graduates of the NRMCA Certified Concrete Professional Middle East (CCPfME) was awarded to 12 industry professionals. CCPfME is the highest designation in the concrete industry. Professionals must take a total of 120 hours of continuing education through NRMCA, its Middle East partner Grey Matters and other approved education providers to meet the requirements for the certification. Many of the graduates started their courses through NRMCA online programs and completed with Grey Matters education programs. Another highlight of the event was the awarding of the NRMCA Quality Certification to Unimix, the first ever awarded in the Middle East.
