Short Term Programs
Concrete Formers set, pour and mold concrete into a variety of shapes and sizes dependent on the application. They are responsible for the concrete forms to ensure it is poured and set correctly.
This program is suited to those individuals who enjoy hands-on work and primarily in an outdoor environment and as part of a work crew. Your day-to-day ability to work on a job site will largely be dependent on ideal weather conditions to allow the concrete to set properly, though work may be done in all weather conditions.
Looking to start a career where you can literally “shape” your future? The Concrete Forming program gives you hands-on learning to prepare you for employment and the skills needed on job sites. You will become well-versed in the fundamentals of how to install and safely dismantle concrete form work to protect and prolong the life of the forms. The operations of placing concrete includes bulkheads, keyways, control joints, expansion joints and isolation joints. Of course, there will be an emphasis on site safety throughout the program.
