'Twenty days of CPD training on concrete design and construction for the price of a text book.' That is the promise from The Concrete Centre with its launch of the new updated version of CALcrete, 'the computer-aided learning package', which covers major aspects of concrete materials, design and construction.
Initially developed by the Reinforced Concrete Council, CALcrete has been updated under a Concrete Centre/DTI-backed Partnership in Innovation project to provide additional modules that include designing to the latest version of EC2, health and safety and environmental issues.
Existing modules include precast, hybrid and prestressed concrete, concrete design to both EC2 and BS8110, concrete bridges and pavements, and good site practice. All have been written and developed to ensure industry relevance and to encourage flexible and interactive learning.
Introductory CALcrete modules can be downloaded free of charge from The Concrete Centre's website at www. concretecentre. com.
The full suite of modules is available from the Concrete Bookshop, tel 01344 725704, for £50 including VAT and p&p.
