ETEC of Brandon, S.D., has released its 2007 line of training materials created specifically for concrete testing technicians. Included in this line are the Concrete Field Testing and Concrete Strength Testing technician training products. Both products can be used in preparation for certification as a reference or to keep pace with changes in the standards.
All of eTEC’s training products are modular in format, self-paced, interactive and consistent with the latest national standards. The user interface is similar to a web page. Varied learning styles are addressed through the inclusion of slide presentations, narrated video demonstrations, step-by-step outlines, self-assessment quizzes and a glossary. When appropriate, equipment calibration also is demonstrated. Portions of a training module can be printed from PDF documents.
