Amvic ICF Building System Training Classes
Amvic-Pacific offers a one day intensive seminar for contractors, architects, or owners interested in learning more about construction using insulating concrete form (ICF) systems.
Currently classes are offered in the Sacramento, California area.
Classes provide a mixture of instructor-led class room presentations and discussions, and also hands-on demonstration of the basics of all construction, electrical and plumbing installation, interior and exterior finishes, environmental benefits, energy savings, and value & safety. While AMVIC ICF is the primary focus of the class, much of the information provided is generalized and the course content is largely applicable to all brands of ICF block construction.
With completion of the course, an attendee will have been exposed to all of the basic requirements & skills needed to build a typical 1-4 story residence or light commercial structure.
There are no prerequisites for the course, however, a basic familiarity with construction practices and terms will assure receiving maximum benefit from the course.
