Ian has delivered over 50 B80 Grey Card courses for various major contractors and subcontractors (piling and FRP) in locations ranging from Sydney to western Victoria, southern, western and northern NSW, and south-east Queensland. Courses follow the RMS NSW curriculum with additional information designed to engage with a wide range of trainees – from ‘raw’ labourers to experienced concrete workers and technical staff. Almost all trainees report that they have improved their understanding of why concrete behaves the way it does, and why good construction practices are so important for strong, durable concrete structures.
