CSDA gives World of Concrete education programme a high fivePublished 16/1, 2017 at 14:23
To meet growing demand for top-quality industry training and cater for an expanding range of services, the US Concrete Sawing and Drilling Association is scheduling five training courses at the World of Concrete 2017 in Las Vegas.
This is the highest number of training courses offered by the CSDA at a single event, having previously held four courses at World of Concrete 2016 when the association graduated a record 115 students, an 83% increase over the previous year.
“Since we began offering training at WOC back in 2010 we have seen registration numbers steadily increase, culminating in two of our 2016 courses being sold out, each graduating 40 students,” said CSDA training committee chairman Dan Foley. “WOC presents a unique opportunity for companies to acquire invaluable industry training while taking in everything else this hugely-important show has to offer.”
The latest addition to the CSDA’s course schedule has been designed for experienced ground penetrating radar technicians. The two-day GPR certification course tests students on GPR theory, proper mark out procedures, the limitations of GPR and the application of advanced locating techniques. The CSDA aims to set the standard for educating and certifying the proficiency of GPR technicians with this new course.
CSDA, a long-standing cosponsor of WOC, will exhibit at booth C4433 in the central hall. WOC visitors can use the association’s unique source code, A26, but some restrictions may apply.
