The course begins by identifying the basic components of concrete, including air, cement, water, and fine aggregate or sand, and course aggregate or stone. Next, the course analyzes the causes and effects of concrete deterioration that necessitate repair. After understanding the reasons for repair, the course will provide learners with the knowledge to assess the condition of a space and the ability to engineer the appropriate solution. Finally, the course will describe concrete repair fundamentals including surface preparation, placement, and curing.
