Congratulations to Borjana Savic, Jensen Precast Water Resources Project Manager, on earning the designation of Master Precaster from the National Precast Concrete Association. Savic was presented with an NPCA Precast University certificate and gold hard hat during a February 28 recognition event at The Precast Show 2019 in Louisville, Kentucky.
“Being recognized as a Master Precaster is a major accomplishment, and one that requires a great deal of commitment,” says NPCA President Ty Gable. “Although the path is arduous, nothing is more important than ensuring that employees are equipped with the right tools, resources, and knowledge to be successful in the workforce. We are very proud of the Master Precaster class of 2019.”
To become a Master Precaster, students must complete six NPCA Precast University courses totaling 89 hours that consist of topics spread across three Production and Quality School levels. Notable topics include batching and mixing for precast concrete, water-cement ratios, forklift operations, precast maturity methods, reading and understanding blueprints, basics of design theory for concrete elements, and improving employee performance. The courses train students in production, quality, safety, technical, and plant leadership.
