Shotcrete basics and practical training

The nozzleman is ultimately responsible for the quality of sprayed concrete. In the interest of the contractor, he operates and maintains the equipment and ensures safety at the workplace. EFNARC has recognized the importance of trainings for nozzlemen and has developed an internationally recognized
certification system.

The nozzleman certification system with recognised EFNARC examiners was introduced in 2009. In view of the rapid development of modern
robotic application equipment and new concrete technology, the need for education and training has increased.

With the EFNARC Certificate C2, a standardized quality framework for training and assessment was created, combining theory and practice with Virtual Reality (VR) simulator technology.
