Responding to industry demand, the NRMCA has created a plant manager’s certification course. The course is the only one that is specifically designed for plant managers of ready mixed concrete production facilities. A certification exam will validate the specific skill levels needed in these areas. Course instruction will cover plant safety, operations, product knowledge, environmental and business concepts. Course participants who successfully pass the product knowledge portion of the exam will be certified as plant operators; those passing all sections of the certification exam will be certified as ready mixed concrete plant managers.
