Course Description:
This one day session will cover the major duties and responsibilities of an individual responsible for the quality of a project.  It will address the importance of understanding the plans, the contract, the materials to be used and the various quality control tests used in project inspection.  A short session on calculating rates of applications, areas and volumes will be presented also.  Emphasis will be placed on materials and operations and the important aspects of what to look for that can result in problems after the job is completed. This course is presented in a straight foreword manner and deals with the reality of everyday factors involving contractors and agencies.
