DVS en Preparing and Finishing Concrete

Code :

Durée du programme : heures | mois


Description :

Concrete finishers are trained primarily to prepare and finish concrete surfaces. During the construction of a building or other structure, they are the ones who pour the concrete where needed and then use a rake and a straightedge to even it out. Once the cement has hardened, they are responsible for doing the finishing. To do this, they use a mechanical polishing machine, which makes the concrete surface smooth and uniform. Since this machine cannot reach the edges, these workers use finishing trowels to complete the job.
