About the course

What can I expect out of this qualification?

This qualification is for people who work in the concrete construction and production industry and who wish to gain a higher technical knowledge of the concepts of concrete construction. It is a theoretical based qualification and recognises the specialist technical knowledge required by people working in the industry.

This qualification could build upon the skills and knowledge gained by people who have achieved the National Certificate in Concrete Construction (Specialist) with strands in Sitework and Pre-cast Concrete [Ref: 0744], the National Certificate in Concrete Construction with strands in Sitework, and Pre-cast Concrete [Ref: 0732], or the National Certificate in Concrete Production (Ready-Mixed Concrete) [Ref: 0731], but it is not a requirement that the above qualifications be obtained before this qualification is undertaken. Candidates completing this qualification, who wish to achieve additional certification, may choose to sit the external examination for the London City and Guilds 6290 Concrete Technology qualification which requires similar knowledge.
