Concrete NZ has developed a Concrete Construction Course designed for those responsible for supervising the receipt and placement of fresh concrete on-site. Typically, this would be the site foreman and the formwork carpenter, although building apprentices will find the course invaluable. The aim of the course is to promote quality concrete construction. Built around NZS 3109 Concrete Construction, the two day classroom based course meets industry needs and relevant NZQA standards.
