Course 1: Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to:fabricate, erect, and brace various wood and steel forms for footings, piers, and walls in accordance with blueprint specifications using proven work practices. Course 2: Students will be able to: understand the process involved in building layout, concrete placement, and slab reinforcement; identify and define terms and materials used in concrete formwork construction; construct necessary formwork used in concrete placement for slabs; identify basic materials used in deck form construction; construct job-build deck form components; identify different concrete stairways, stair forms, and stairway arrangements; perform all calculations for an accurately laid out stairway; identify materials and processes for building stair forms for concrete stairways, form stripping and concrete finishing for concrete stairways; and exhibit safe work practices when constructing and stripping slab, deck forms, and stair forms.
Course 1: This course introduces apprentices to the fundamental aspects of concrete formwork, including formwork materials, form hardware, and formwork safety practices. Course 2: This course builds upon the basic principles governing concrete formwork explored and practiced in Concrete Forms I. Hands-on building projects include the layout and erection of columns, beams, and slabs. Apprentices also learn how to calculate tread and riser layout to build and erect a stair form.
In the lower division baccalaureate/associate degree category, 4 semester hours as a technical elective in Carpentry or Construction Technology (10/20). NOTE: Both courses must be completed to receive credit.
