Do You Want to Learn How to Forensically Diagnose Concrete Problems?
During this class, you will learn about the design, construction, and troubleshooting fundamentals of concrete slabs-on-grade, one of the most frequently used construction elements in commercial and
 industrial projects. Despite their popularity
and extensive use, concrete slabs-ongrade are responsible for most in-service deficiencies and construction problems.
You will review examples for both reinforced and non reinforced slabs-ongrade and you will learn to design high quality and constructible concrete slabs-ongrade.
You will take home a very practical review of concrete materials as well as geotechnical, construction and quality control principles (including troubleshooting).
Mr. Nunez is known in the construction industry, nationally and internationally, as a forensic concrete engineer inspector.

From the Guild's Board of Advisors and Founder:
Starting in 2009, the Guild brought scientists into the flooring industry to teach flooring professionals the science behind our flooring, and flooring concerns. This was a first for the inspection trade, installers, and retailers. We pledge to you our dedication and promise to provide you with only the best education with the upmost highest of ethical standards. Others may try to imitate the Guild for quick profits; however, we pledge to remain true to our original purpose. A brand you have trusted since 2009, and can continue to trust today and in the future.
