Concrete Formwork refers to the moulds that wet concrete is placed into, and which gives a
concrete structure its shape. Formwork is available in several types, and may be constructed
from a variety of materials – some formwork may be built on-site from lumber and plywood,
while other types may come in prefabricated modules that are assembled on-site. This course
blends in-class instruction with practical training, to provide participants with an understanding
regarding the construction, layout and assembly of various types of concrete formwork.
