The RMC Research Foundation announced the release of the Spanish Edition of the Truck Mixer Driver’s Manual: Manual del Conductor de Mixer. This new version of one of the most popular educational publications offered by the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA) will help teach Spanish-speaking drivers in their native language.
The RMC Research Foundation’s board of trustees funded this project to help educate drivers who are new to the industry. These workers are increasingly coming from the Spanish- speaking community, claims the Foundation. “Given the projected shortage of drivers our overall business faces, we wanted to act now to help support the industry with this excellent educational tool that may help in further promoting us as ‘an industry of choice,’” stated Foundation chairman Dominique Calabrese in a press release.
A project to translate NRMCA’s Concrete Delivery Professional (CDP) Program modules is currently underway, and the results will be released later in 2007.
