The Level 4 Certificate: Concrete Technology has been produced in conjunction with the Institutes of Quarrying, Institute of Asphalt Technology and also the University of Derby Corporate.  The cost for this course is:

Construction employs three million people – 8% of the UK workforce according to an independent report compiled for the UK Constructors Group by L.E.K. Consulting.  It is therefore essential that those working in this area are trained, educated and recognised for the skill that they have at ALL levels of the organisations.  The Level 4 Certificate: Concrete Technology is one of a series of academic qualifications produced by The Concrete Society to assist the global concrete workforce in achieving the recognition it deserves.
