CSDA launches new online training platform for concrete cutting and drilling industry
CSDA has launched a brand-new online training platform, giving its members and all members of the concrete industry more opportunities to advance their knowledge of diamond tools and technology.
The new website features an updated version of the association's Cutting Edge training class, now streamlined and featuring more information for operators, sales managers, and anyone who wants to learn more about diamond tools, sawing, drilling techniques and job site safety.
Cutting Edge is geared towards new and less experienced operators who want to learn about the basics of diamond tools, how diamonds cut, the basics of slab sawing, core drilling, wall sawing, hand sawing, job site safety best practices, and more. It is a self-paced course, and each module has a quiz to complete to assure competency. Owners and managers can track their employee's progress and sign-up multiple employees to take the course.
The online platform also offers the entire library of CSDA's Toolbox Safety Tips (TSTs) available to purchase in bundles according to job type or safety topic. There are over 100 TSTs available, and new topics are added on a regular basis. Classes on GPR Methods & Theory, Estimating, Silica Safety and more will be added soon.
