UQ-CCAA Advanced Concrete Technology Course
The Advanced Concrete Technology (ACT) course builds on the knowledge and learning of the other three training courses offered by Cement Concrete & Aggregates Australia.
The course will be presented by the University of Queensland and Cement Concrete & Aggregates Australia under the auspices of the UK Institute of Concrete Technology (ICT). The course is further endorsed by the Concrete Institute of Australia.
The UQ-CCAA Advanced Concrete Technology Course will be offered once sufficient student interest is noted.
The course will provide in-depth technical training in concrete technology and practice and is designed to enable delegates to become technical leaders in the industry. Experts from the international and Australian construction industries, universities and CCAA will present the lectures.
The target audience includes qualified and experienced senior technical personnel, civil and material engineers, cement chemists, concrete technologists and technicians involved in the building, construction, precast concrete, mining and in the cement, aggregate, admixture and ready-mixed concrete industries.
Delegates who pass both three-hour on-campus examinations, and have their research project accepted, receive the Advanced Concrete Technology Diploma, qualify for the Corporate Membership of the ICT and as corporate members are entitled to use the post-nominal letters, MICT.
An appropriate university degree, or a higher technical diploma in civil engineering, or any other appropriate branch of science or technology, OR substantial industry experience and industry recognition.
Delegates attending the course should have a minimum of four years’ experience in a responsible position related to concrete. The UQ-CCAA’s ACT Course Committee will review and approve all applications to ensure that delegates have the necessary experience to undertake this demanding course. Interviews may also be required.
The course is presented as a logical progression from the courses offered by CCAA. Completion of these courses is desirable but not mandatory.
