Estonian Concrete Association invites for training: Advanced Training in Concrete Fundamentals


The Estonian Concrete Association together with Tallinn University of Technology invites you to the training "Advanced Training in Concrete Fundamentals" taking place at Tallinn University of Technology from February 28th to March 1st. During this three-day training, you will gain an overview of the basic aspects and properties of concrete. The first day will focus on the composition, properties, and consistency of concrete, the second day will introduce concrete testing, compliance with standards, and the effects of curing conditions. On the final day, topics will include factory production control, possibilities of laboratory tests, and the training will conclude with knowledge assessment, discussion, and certificate issuance.
