This highly interactive course is intended to provide the delegates with best practices in quality control and quality assurance using the most recent non-destructive testing for concrete and steel structures.

By attending this course the delegates will be able to supervise and control or establish total quality management for projects. The delegate will be familiar with quality control for concrete and steel structures. In addition, they will also learn ways to select best contractors or supplier according to ISO 9001 criteria to enhance the project performance.

Learning Objectives

The participants will familiarise with all quality management technique and procedure and the available non-destructive testing for concrete and steel structure projects. All laboratory test on site will be addressed in this course using videos.

Target Audience

This course is designed for Construction Engineers, Project Managers, QA/QC Professionals and all those who would like to learn about:

  • Implementing total quality management
  • Auditing supplier or internal auditing
  • Control the whole project from design until operations and maintenance
  • Non-destructive testing for concrete structure
  • Non-destructive testing in steel structure

Training Methodology

The programme will be interactive and practical. The illustration will be through videos and photos from real projects. It depends on interactive with the delegate with brain storm idea about challenges in this work to be cope with the quality management technical practice.
