Events & Seminars

The Institute's educational programs aim to increase knowledge through the dissemination of fundamental and applied information for the benefit of the concrete and construction industry in general.

The programs aid in the facilitation of communications, sharing of knowledge and experience and provide an opportunity for peers within the concrete industry to interact and network. 
Regular seminars, webinars, technical evenings and site visits are held around Australia by the Institute - through both National and State programs. Keeping abreast of the latest issues and developments occurring within the dynamic field of concrete is crucial. Browse for educational programs in your respective State or National programs that are of interest to you.
