Concrete Safety

The concrete profession requires workers to use potentially hazardous tools and to work in areas where accidents can result from momentary carelessness. This course prepares concrete craft workers for job site hazards and ways to manage them. This course emphasizes creating and maintaining a safety culture on the job site as an ongoing process that begins with dedicated company leadership, sound safety policies, and committed craftworkers.

Concrete Tools and Equipment

Concrete tools and equipment provide the interface between the craftworker and the concrete. Due to the many stages involved in the concrete process, there are many special tools required. Some tools may look similar to others, some tools may not have changed much over time, and some tools make use of the latest technology and materials. This course prepares concrete craftworkers to identify, use, and properly care for the tools of the craft.

Curing and Protecting Concrete

The curing process for every placement must be tuned to the current weather conditions and the specifications. This course covers the curing process and identifies various approaches used to control the process when the conditions are less than ideal. Regardless of how much care is taken to construct forms, place concrete, and finish it to the required specification, a good result depends on a properly executed curing process.

Finishing Concrete

In this course, the concrete craftworker will discover that concrete finishing incorporates a variety of tasks that transform newly placed concrete from a rough, open surface to its final smooth state. Learners discover that the finishing process is the concrete craftworker’s opportunity to determine the final appearance of the concrete, as well as its surface density and other characteristics.

Horizontal Formwork

This course prepares concrete craftworkers to work with horizontal concrete formwork used in the construction of floors, bridge decks, culverts, beams, girders, and other horizontal concrete structures. Learners will explore various types of horizontal form systems used widely in heavy commercial or industrial construction. This course also covers shoring methods used in conjunction with horizontal form systems and the safety considerations related to working with shoring and horizontal form systems.

Paving Concrete

All highway and bridge construction projects ultimately involve some type of paving. Two of the most prominent types of paving operations are concrete paving and hot-mix asphalt paving. This course describes paving operations, paving equipment, recycling processes, and quality control efforts for both concrete and hot-mix asphalt paving. Concrete craftworkers will understand concrete and asphalt paving operations, be able to recognize different types of paving equipment, understand how the equipment works, and know how to control the quality of the paving work being done.

Preparing for Placement

This course provides broad information about the activities and materials necessary to prepare a site for concrete placement. Topics such as subgrade preparation, formwork setup, the prevention of cracks and other stress-related concrete failures, and final preparations for placement are covered. Concrete craftworkers will be prepared to see the larger picture relative to the concrete construction process.

Properties of Concrete

There is far more to concrete than just cement and water. Anyone working with concrete should be familiar with various mix designs, as well as their uses and limitations. This course explores the numerous admixtures and other ingredients used to alter the properties of concrete to meet specific project needs and environmental conditions, as well as the many tool that are used to change those properties.

Reinforcing Concrete

Within any structure built with concrete, the foundation and any concrete walls and floors will be reinforced. This course covers using the correct reinforcing material and supports, placing them following the project drawings, and using the correct methods to tie the reinforcing material. The concrete craftworker will explore reinforcing concrete and how properly installed and reinforced concrete safely serves as the supporting structures for large buildings, bridges, roads, and dams.

Tilt-Up Wall Panels

The course covers tilt-up construction, which has become extremely popular in all types of commercial and industrial construction. Tilt-up buildings of up to eight stories are now fairly common in the construction of office buildings, churches, apartment buildings, and schools. Concrete craftworkers will learn that tilt-up concrete construction involves casting concrete wall panels on a concrete slab and lifting them into place after the concrete has cured.

Troubleshooting and Quality Control

Building owners and developers must ensure they get what they contracted for in terms of building quality. To that end, architects and engineers want to be sure the building is constructed to their specifications so that it performs as designed. This course will review proactive steps taken by contractors and the field-testing procedures used by concrete craftworkers to deliver the best product possible.

Vertical Formwork

Forms are used in the construction of everything from retaining walls to bridges to high-rise buildings. This course explores the vertical forms used in building walls, columns, and stairs, as well as slip forms and climbing forms used in building piers, silos, elevator, and stair cores for buildings, and even entire building structures. Concrete craftworkers will be guided through processes to plan, apply, and assemble forms.
