A total of 16 participants from three countries: Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia had participated and completed the 14th run of the Certificate in Concrete Technology course.
The course is organised by American Concrete Institute-Singapore Chapter (ACI-SC) to familiarize technical personnel in the concrete industry with the certification scheme. The certificate of this course is required by SAC CT05 for auditors/inspectors of certification body for RMC plant and SAC CT06 for technical managers and QAQC Managers for RMC.
With effect from 1 October 2010, for Ready-Mixed Concrete (RMC) Certification, Building and Construction Authority (BCA) will require batching plants to be certified by certification bodies accredited under Singapore Accreditation Council’s
Accreditation Scheme. This RMC certification is based on the new Singapore Standards SS EN 206 (Concrete – Specification, performance, production and conformity) and SS 544 (Concrete – Complementary Singapore Standard to SS EN 206).
The course is based on the new SS EN 206 and its compulsory standards SS 544-1 & 2. It gives interpretation of these standards and provides guidance to the production
and conformity control of concrete. The course is a continuing education and training programme for engineers and supervisors who are involved in the concrete industry. The course will be particularly beneficial for technical personnel working in concrete production and at the construction sites. Developers or design office personnel who wish to understand the new concrete standards or to acquire specialised knowledge in concrete technology will also find this course useful.
