The American Society of Concrete Contractors (ASCC), St. Louis, has completed a new Concrete Finishing Training DVD.  The 46-minute presentation provides finishers with basic instruction in both hand and machine concrete finishing slabs-on-ground and suspended slabs.

The presentation is divided into sections for easy viewing, stop/start, and review.  The concrete finishing training DVD covers Safety, Concrete Properties, Types of Finishes, Finishing Processes, Equipment, Joints, and Troubleshooting.

Footage was shot on working job sites to best demonstrate correct finishing techniques.  “This presentation is an excellent introduction to finishing basics for the new finisher, and a great review for more experienced employees,” said Scott Anderson, chair of ASCC’s Education & Training Committee, the group responsible for this training tool.

The cost of the Concrete Finishing Training DVD is $75 for ASCC members and $95 for non-members.  To order go to or call (866) 788-2722.
