About the course

This course is intended for civil engineers who are interested in the area of inspection, assessment and repair of concrete structures. This course enables delegates already familiar with what concrete is, to develop skills in effective specification, production and end users of concrete. The course also covers basics as well as advanced concepts up-to-date technology.

Course Objectives

The delegates will be provided with detailed course material and will be familiarized with various features on concrete construction.

Upon successful completion of this course, the delegates will be able to:

  • Explain the nature of concrete and determine slag and fly ash properties as well the properties of admixtures and concrete mixes
  • Employ inspection, quality control, sampling and testing on concrete sites
  • Monitor and supervise repairs and health and safety on concrete site practices
  • Select precise materials and apply specifications, concrete production and quality assurance on concrete structure
  • Discuss the principles of concrete mix design
  • Inspect and perform sampling and compliance testing
