The Wacker Neuson Technical Academy has scheduled its second prep course for the ACI Specialty Commercial/Industrial Concrete Floor Finishers certification. Any concrete contractor wanting to expand their techniques and give themselves an extra edge prior to taking the ACI certification test is welcome to attend. The class will be held Sept. 12 to 13, 2011, 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 Wacker Neuson Technical Academy’s goal is that after completing the course, all participants are fully prepared to complete the written and skills portions of the official ACI Specialty Commercial/Industrial Floor Finishers certification test.
Wacker Neuson is offering the class 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.
