L&M Adds One-Hour AIA approved Structural Grout Program to Their Existing Curriculum.

Greg Schwietz updates concrete professionals during L&M's Concrete Concepts school
The American Institute of Architects (AIA), under its Continuing Education System (CES), has recognized L&M Construction Chemicals as a registered Passport Provider. L&M has recently developed its fourth AIA approved classroom program, which is designed to inform and educate the novice and experienced user/specifier about the many uses and properties of non-shrink, structural grouts. This program, along with the three other, AIA approved programs on concrete, is fact-filled, fast-paced, and expertly given by our own experienced teachers. Helpful resource material is given to all attendees for their future reference.

Under the provisions of the AIA (CES), these programs are accredited based on contact hours. Many holders of professional engineering and architectural licenses have found these programs helpful in meeting the professional development hour requirements for license renewal. The four current programs offered are:

STRUCTURAL GROUT (L&M's Newest Program) is a one-hour program that covers the characteristics that a non-shrink grout must have in order to perform effectively as a load transfer medium. You'll learn about the different types of cementitious and epoxy grouts available for the structural grouting of structural steel column base plates, as well as heavy-duty installations involving equipment and machinery. Also discussed are the latest specs from ASTM, along with state of the art technology from ACI, mixing, placement, forming, field-testing, and recommendations for product selection

CONCRETE BASICS is a one-hour program addressing the interaction of materials used in concrete and its plastic and hardened properties.

CONCRETE FUNDAMENTALS, a two-hour program covers the same material as Concrete Basics, but in greater detail and with an additional section on admixtures.

CONCRETE CONCEPTS, requiring four hours, is a our most in-depth program on concrete, covering the course material in Concrete Basics and Fundamentals in even greater detail, as well as an additional section on super flat floors.
