Manitoba Home Builder’s Association approached Manitoba Construction Sector Council to develop a at work technician course that would address skill gaps in the homebuilding industry. After completing the Flatwork Technician certificate course, the graduate will be knowledgeable about proper procedures to place, consolidate, finish, edge, joint, cure and protect concrete at work. This program focuses specifically on at work techniques, such as driveways, garages, and sidewalks, as they relate to residential construction. It is designed for the entry level construction worker who wants a specific skill set to and or keep employment. The at work technician course will teach technical skills (knowledge of tools, equipment and processes) and will embed safety training and Essential Skills throughout the program (reading, measurement, document use, communication, physical dexterity, working with others).
