Each of the Associations that make up the Structural Concrete Alliance is passionate about improving the skills of the specialist workforce they represent and educating the wider industry about the importance of employing qualified technicians for all asset protection and repair projects.
Selecting a member of one of the associations that make up the Structural Concrete Alliance can help to ensure that repairs and protection are fit for purpose and appropriate to the service life expectations for the building or structure.
All three associations offer CPD presentations and seminars for the wider industry, as well as specialist training for association members as detailed below.
