PM Development Series: Materials Testing 101 (LAB)
Thursday, May 30, 2019
8:00 A.M. - 11:00 A.M.

Session #4 of the 2019 ABC-VA Project Manager Development Series will provide class members a
unique opportunity to tour a construction material testing laboratory.  The forum will present an overview of materials testing laboratory accreditation requirements, processing of materials,
materials analysis, concrete cylinder testing, forensic analysis, and more.  Following a classroom training session at the site, participants will be provided the opportunity to witness several typical materials tests often required in construction.  A full understanding of the materials testing
process is not complete without a general knowledge of the complete process.  Hosted by a leading materials testing laboratory, GET Solutions, the session will be conducted by several engineers
who will provide a differing perspective on their role in construction.

This class is limited to 24 participants!

Who Should Attend?
Assistant Project Managers, Project Managers, Superintendents
