The Wacker Neuson Technical Academy this week announced its second prep course for the ACI Specialty Commercial/Industrial Concrete Floor Finishers certification. Any concrete contractor wanting to expand his or her techniques and get an extra edge prior to taking the ACI certification test is welcome to attend. The class — Commercial/Industrial Concrete Flatwork Finisher Prep Course — will be held Sept. 12-13, at Wacker Neuson’s Menomonee Falls, Wis., training campus.
The course is conducted by 17-time Golden Trowel Award winner, Bryan Birdwell, and Wacker Neuson’s team of professional product and application instructors. Birdwell has proven his expertise in producing the flattest, most level concrete floors in the world. He joined Wacker Neuson’s Technical Academy team to teach contractors his best practices and give them the technical skills they need to pass the highest level industrial/commercial certification exams. Wacker Neuson’s training team has conducted hundreds of product, application and service training sessions at the Menomonee Falls facility and in the field.
The two-day course includes interactive classroom discussions focused on construction concrete floors with topics including F-numbers, constructing proper sub-grade, mix design, hand and power tools, trowel machine patterns and troubleshooting. The highlight of the course is an actual concrete pour where students can participate in the complete concrete process.
The course is offered at the introductory price of $250, which includes two days of instruction including the actual concrete pour, ACI Certification Workbook CP-10(05), hotel accommodations and lunches. For more information, or to sign up visit www.wackerneusontech.com.
