Concrete is the most widely used type of construction material. The first six units cover the physical characteristics, properties, and ingredients of concrete; the form design and construction principles; construction procedures with emphasis on concrete placement, finishing, and curing techniques; and the proportions of ingredients.

Units 7, 8, and 9 cover masonry basic tools and equipment, properties, and mixing of mortar. Concrete masonry includes the characteristics of concrete blocks, construction procedures, and rubble stone masonry.
