Objectifs du programme

The Preparing and Finishing Concrete program aims to train students to set up, finish and protect cement surfaces. Concrete workers work with a variety of types of surfaces and vertical and horizontal structures, such as, floors, walls, sidewalks, pavements, curbs, stairways, dams, bridges and concrete tunnels. Furthermore, concrete workers apply texture, chisel, grind, and cure finished concrete and repair and restore damamged concrete. Cement workors apply different finishes to concrete surfaces such as architectural, motifs, stamps, swept or smooth finishes, as well as applying color to concrete. Cement workers install waterproof membranes to cement surfaces as well as other waterproofing products.

Cement workers are found in the four construction sectors - residential, institutional and commercial, industrial and civil engineering and transport.

Préalables fonctionnels

Cette section indique les épreuves ou les codes de cours des programmes d'études actuels de la formation générale des adultes requis comme préalables spécifiques en langue d'enseignement et en mathématique. Le respect des préalables fonctionnels comporte la réussite des préalables spécifiques et la réussite du test de développement général (TDG). Lorsqu'un DEP n'exige pas de préalables spécifiques en langue d'enseignement ou en mathématique, un tiret ( - ) figure dans les cellules visées. Dans le cas des programmes menant à une ASP, les préalables spécifiques et le TDG ne s'appliquent pas (N/A).
