    Concrete Technology & Construction - Stage 3: Practical Applications

    The course Concrete Technology & Construction - Stage 3 : Practical Applications represents the third step in of the industry endorsed four-stage qualification framework which is directly linked to the professional grades of membership of the Institute of Concrete Technology (ICT). It is intended for all personnel involved in production, use or quality control activities associated with concrete.

    As well as providing essential and up-to-date information for specifiers, producers and contractors, the course prepares candidates for the examination leading to the recognized qualification Concrete Technology & Construction - Stage 3 : Practical Applications awarded by the ICT.

    It is generally expected that candidates will have successfully completed the Stage 2 General Principles course or possess equivalent experience. The unitized and modular approach is designed to enable candidates to progress at their own pace and complete the course in time for revision before the ICT examination that is traditionally held in mid-May every year.
