CTLGroup-Qatar has developed a range of quality assurance programs and guidelines to ensure that our clients receive the highest level of service and expertise. The certifications we have, and the employees who uphold them, are yet another part of our overall quality assurance program that attests to our high level of professionalism and commitment to quality. CTLGroup-Qatar has Certified Green-Star Plant Auditors and Truck Inspectors on staff to conduct Ready Mix Concrete Production Facilities Certifications.
Certifications Programs with National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA)
NRMCA offers certifications for both ready mixed concrete industry facilities and personnel. Certifications provide a competitive edge in the industry, showing customers and regulatory agencies that certified producers have an understanding of and support measures to provide the highest quality ready mixed concrete in the safest and most efficient ways possible. Listed below are the Certification Programs that CTLGroup-Qatar provides:
Plant & Truck Certification Program
NRMCA certification of concrete production facilities provides a system for establishing that production facilities of ready mixed concrete plants are satisfactory. It reflects, and in many cases exceeds, the requirements of standard specifications for ready mixed concrete, such as ASTM C 94, AASHTO M 157, and the Concrete Plant Standards of the Concrete Plant Manufacturers Bureau, CPMB 100. A certified plant is permitted to display a Certificate of Conformance that assures the purchaser that the facility is physically capable of furnishing good quality concrete.
Green Star Plant Certification Program
The NRMCA Green-Star Program of the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association has been designed by the Environmental Task Group of the Operations, Environmental and Safety Committee (NRMCA-OES) as a means to support the efforts of the ready mixed concrete industry towards environmental excellence, through the recognition of the use of Environmental Management Systems (EMS) as a tool for environmental benchmarking and continual improvement, and as a means to recognize those who adhere to essential principals of the environmental and sustainability movement of our industry.
Sustainable Concrete Plant Certification Program
The NRMCA Sustainable Concrete Plant Certification (Certification) program provides a quantitative, performance-based metric, to allow ready mixed concrete producers to demonstrate excellence in sustainable development. The Certification provides ready mixed concrete plant personnel with specific guidance to assess their production practices and implement sustainability strategies that will ultimately lower their overall footprint.
Customized Training Programs in collaboration with ASHGHAL, QCS & ASTM
Under the supervision of Public Work Authority (ASHGHAL) & Qatar Construction Specifications (QCS), CTLGroup-Qatar has been organizing in collaboration with and American Society for Testing & Materials (ASTM) a series of training courses related to construction material fundamentals and testing.
The courses developed include introductory topics about various construction Materials, Properties, Placement & Sampling Procedures and Testing. Upon Completion of course, attendees received a certificate accredited by American Society of Testing & Materials (ASTM).
During March 2018, CTLGroup-Qatar launched its first training program titled "Fundamentals of Concrete & Concrete Testing". the course attendees received a fast-paced, two-days program, developed especially for concrete industry personnel who need fundamental yet practical concrete knowledge. The course combined classroom instruction, lab demonstrations, and hands-on training to help employees meet customer needs. Course topics will include an Introduction to Concrete Materials, Properties of Concrete, Placement & Sampling Procedures, and Concrete Fresh Property Testing.
