Learner Outcomes: 

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 3:  Students will be able to: identify and safely construct four types of scaffolds, including welded frame, tube and clamp, systems, and mobile tower.


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. Course 3: Apprentices are introduced to scaffolding systems and their regulations, standards, and safety issues. Successful completion of the course will qualify apprentices under federal and local law to assist in the erection, dismantling, repair, maintenance or modification of any supported scaffold on the job site. NOTE: Course 3 is offered in Year 1, but is listed here since credit recommendations are linked to Course 1 and 2.

Credit recommendation: 

Course 1, 2, and 3: In the lower division baccalaureate/associate degree category, 5 semester hours (3 lecture, 2 laboratory) in Carpentry or Construction Technology (11/07) (2/13 revalidation). NOTE: All three courses must be completed to receive credit.
