Concrete Career Academy

The Concrete Career Academy is an education coalition of state concrete associations from the Carolinas, Kentucky, and Tennessee. The primary function of the academy is to enhance and advance the careers of all who work in the concrete industry, so content is targeted in more than one discipline.

Multiple offerings can be found on the platform structured for individual participation with a unique sign in for each participant. This means that every person signing up for a course must have their own email address.  Any company wishing to register multiple employees and be billed as a company should complete this form online in lieu of the single sign up/sign in in the upper right hand corner of this screen. The single sign up in the upper right hand corner allows an individual to register and pay with a credit card at time of entry. If you are a member of a participating state association, you will need to contact your state association for a code to get member pricing on some courses.

More About Digital Badges
In today’s digitally connected world, a static paper certificate of completion is no longer the most effective way to recognize such dedication, nor does it allow individuals to easily share their credentials across the web with others- namely employers, colleagues or customers. As such, digital badges have become the common currency to recognize and verify completion of training programs and the earning of industry credentials.

Each digital badge icon is embedded with information that details the nature of the training, and can be easily shared on social media networks, resumes, websites, or on email signatures. With this in mind, we will issue digital badges to those individuals who participate in many of our training programs as a way to verify and validate that they have achieved highly valued skills and competencies needed for success within our industry.
