The course leads to the highest award in concrete technology and is open to candidates with appropriate intermediate-level qualifications and experience.
Instead of the traditional lecture-based residential course, the web-based system provides course participants with project-based learning opportunities and computer-based self-teaching modules to provide revision, updating and an advanced understanding of concrete technology. It encourages the improvement of thinking skills to aid understanding and access is provided to information additional to that in the 4 volumes of the ACT book.
The course is organised in such a way as to enable participants to share information with one another and to interact online with acknowledged specialist/experts in the topics covered. Before the start of the main course, an induction course will be held in the UK. It is strongly recommended that all participants attend this course to familiarise themselves with the procedures. Non-attendees will be given guidance notes in addition to the ACT book.
The course is organised by Dr J B Newman, Mr R A Binns and Dr P L Domone, and accredited by The Concrete Society / Institute of Concrete Technology (ICT).
Candidates who complete the course successfully are eligible for full membership of the ICT.
