This 4-hour hands-on-training session is limited to 20 attendees per time slot. Want to get dirty and learn how to place, screed, bull float and power trowel a concrete floor slab? This is not a sit and watch session—you’ll be the flatwork finisher! Attendees will be divided into groups of 10 each and each group will place and finish a 12 ft x 30 ft slab under the direction of industry recognized flatwork finishers. You’ll receive individual instructions and tips on how to use various hand and power tools including hand-held vibratory-screeds, straight edges, bull floats, bump cutters and walk-behind power trowels. More importantly you’ll learn about the window of finishability and how to read fresh concrete.
Whether you’re new to the industry or have some finishing experience, don’t miss this opportunity to learn by doing!
NOTE: Space is limited to 20 participants per time slot, so register early!
