The Blockmakers Workshops® are structured to provide industry professionals with an effective combination of classroom and hand-on training. During these interactive sessions students learn skills that they can immediately apply in their plants. This practical knowledge is gained from the instruction and from fellow students. Networking is always cited as a major benefit to attending courses. Previous attendees report that many of the relationships they formed during the weeklong classes have endured for decades!
Industry professionals, including highly skilled veterans and newcomers will benefit from attendance. All courses are taught at the World Center for Concrete Technology located on the campus of Alpena Community College in Alpena, Michigan. All courses are taught by experienced Besser staff and guest presenters. They use real life antidotes to drive points home and drive discussions.
