With over 90% of a producer’s expenses tied to materials management, operations, and production at the plant level, it is essential every concrete plant manager understand the essential aspects of product knowledge, safety, environmental compliance, operations as tied to profit and loss, as well as supervisory principles.  A plant manager is the heart of the ready mixed concrete production facility. Every plant has one and duties differ only slightly from plant-to-plant. This challenging, ready mixed concrete-specific course is the only one that helps them walk-their-walk.

The three-day curriculum and the two certification exams on Day 4 are designed to not only reinforce these specific skill levels, but also incorporates many job requirement skills found in specifications for Army Corps of Engineers’ projects, as well as state and local DOTs.
