Rookies trained in Wall Sawing 101

The Concrete Sawing & Drilling Association (CSDA) has added a three-day course, Wall Sawing 101, to the 2007 CSDA training program.

Wall Sawing 101 is offered March 20- 23, 2007, at the facility of a CSDA manufacturer-member in Olathe, Kan. Wall Sawing 101 gives operators the opportunity to expand their concrete-cutting knowledge and skills to become experts in the setup, operation, troubleshooting and preventive maintenance of wall saws, as well as in hand-sawing, ring-sawing and chain-sawing. In particular, this three-day course aims to give newly hired operators the training to work wall saws and handsaws. The course covers blade and diamond chain selection, how diamonds work with each piece of equipment, and safe work practices, as well as offering classroom and hands-on training on proper set-up, operation and preventive maintenance.

CSDA now offers hands-on, entry-level training in four of the five cutting disciplines: flat sawing, core drilling, hand sawing and wall sawing. More 101 courses are in development, including Wire Sawing 101. For information on what courses are available in 2007, visit and click on “Training.”
