The Concrete program prepares CCLs to work safely and productively in this potentially hazardous field. Safety issues associated with the mixing, forming, placement, and curing of concrete materials as well as the associated skills are covered in depth. Through instructor facilitated and extensive hands-on training, the CCL becomes familiar with construction math and measurements, project planning, and site preparation. Other topics important to a concrete worker, such as forming, placing, finishing, and sawing are covered in detail. Appropriate cleanup procedures and concrete repair are also covered in the program. DVDs for this program include: Concrete Coring, Concrete Forming Systems, Concrete Placement and Consolidation, Concrete Repair, The Walk Behind Saw, Concrete Wall Saw, Concrete Hydraulic Chain Saw, Finishing Concrete Flatwork, Job-Built Forms, The Portable All Purpose Saw, and Site Preparation for Concrete Placement. Additional support materials for this program include: Back Injury Prevention (DVD: Back Injury Prevention), Basic Construction Math, Hazard Communication, Hoisting and Rigging Basics, Trench and Excavation Safety (DVD: On Solid Ground, A Plan for Safe Excavation and Trenching), and Utility Locating Programs. In addition to English, this program is available in Spanish.
