To reflect the growing importance of green building, NRMCA has added a fifth career track to its industry-leading STEPS (Seminars, Training, & Education Programs) program. This latest track, Sustainability, joins Business Management, Concrete Technology, Operations & Production, and Sales, Marketing & Promotion, and reflects the growing importance of ready mixed concrete’s role in sustainable development. The goal of this certification program is to ensure concrete professionals are knowledgeable on concepts of sustainable development and green building practices. Additionally, all class work, readings and exams are offered in an interactive online format to facilitate participation.

Industry personnel can pursue a Certified Concrete Professional (CCPf) designation within each of the five STEPS’ tracks. NRMCA’s CCPf is widely considered the most advanced professional education and training accomplishment and one that hundreds of ready mix employees have earned. To date, NRMCA has awarded more than 50 CCPf certificates, including two in the new Sustainability track.
