WCCT Launches New Website and Improves Master Blockmaker® Certification

In July the World Center for Concrete Technology (WCCT) launched a new, mobile-friendly website. The site is easy-to-use and provides prospective students with new avenues to register for upcoming courses. Students can register online, by fax, mail or phone. The new site also allows students to submit payment by credit card, PayPal, check and to be invoiced.

Effective immediately courses will no longer receive college credit, however, the Master Blockmaker® program has been expanded to allow students to choose from a wider range of courses. “We wanted to provide students with the opportunity to take courses they need to better do their jobs rather than a rigid set of standard classes to earn Master Blockmaker status,” said Kari Schellie, Director of Marketing, Besser Company. Students can now choose five of any week-long Blockmakers Workshop® courses to earn the certification that many in the concrete products industry strive to achieve.


Upcoming fall classes include:

Product Handling & Curing: 14-18 September 2015

Specialty Products / Material Variegation / Recycled Materials: 21-25 September 2015

Concrete Masonry Technology: 12-16 October 2015

Vibrpac®: 19-23 October 2015
