Bay-Lynx is pleased to announce we will be hosting our annual Volumetric Concrete Academy Day on April 13th!
This year we will be offering Volumetric Mixer Operator Certification training and examination through the VVMB’s VMOC program. We’ll cover everything from concrete technology to customer relations. Following the course, you may participate in the exam to gain your volumetric mixer operator certification. Whether you are an operator looking to be certified, an owner or just in the concrete industry and would like to learn more about the volumetric industry, this is a great opportunity!
The course dives into the fundamentals of concrete, its different components, concrete admixtures, and concrete testing. You’ll than learn about operating a volumetric mixer, the components and controls of the machine, calibration, plant and job-site operations and related environmental issues. We’ll also cover the personal and job-site safety hazards involved in operating a mixer and any precautions that must be taken. Lastly, we’ll go through customer and company relations where you’ll learn the basics of customer service, dealing with customer issues and dealing with your company and fellow employees.
Classes are free to attend for educational purposes, but certification will cost $300 USD. Classes will be hosted at the Ancaster Fairgrounds, with the option to join via Zoom. Contact our sales team today to register for this year’s Concrete Academy!
