Overview

Concrete is a construction material that is used globally to build commercial and residential buildings. Its many advantages such as the increase in strength over time, cost-effectiveness, durability and energy efficiency has made it a desired choice over wood and a mandatory skill to get into or progress within the construction and engineering industry.

If you came here wanting to master basic concrete, you are at the right place as this Diploma in Basic Concrete at QLS Level 3 will enlighten you thoroughly on concrete and its application. This basic course will first relay the fundamentals of concrete, its properties and uses. You will then be briefed on the concrete that was used in the Roman period and on the Portland cement to give a background to the subject.

After learning about mineral admixtures and blended cements, this program will educate you on concrete production, concrete slump test and concrete curing. The course will also focus on the environmental, safety and health issues related to concrete and on the hand mixing procedures of concrete to ensure a safe working environment. By the end of this course, you will have a significant basic knowledge on concrete to further your education or training in the subject.
