3.80 Level 2 Test Preparation Workshop

3.80 Level 2 Test Preparation Workshop Overview:

Prepare for your certification test! This workshop is perfect those planning to test. Learn tips and techniques to help you pass your test. There is nothing better to prepare! This workshop differs from typical workshops, including previous test-prep workshops. Each participant will be building substantially more wall, approximately the amount required for the test.  There will be 1 hour of instruction at the beginning of the workshop.  1/2 hour of instruction mid day, and 1 hour of evaluation at the end of the workshop.  At just $60 more than a pre-test (which has no instruction), it is a bargain! The rest of the time participants will be building on their own.  Taking this workshop will not guarantee you will pass you test, but our history shows that people who take a test prep workshop do have a dramatically better chance of passing. Pre-testing is also very important for improving your chances of gaining certifications.

Building at the speed required is one of the hardest things to achieve for wallers preparing to test.  This workshop gives participants the opportunity to do just that.  Each participants wall will then be reviewed so that they know what areas they need to focus on to improve their scores for the test.

This workshop is taught co-currently with 2.80 Test Prep for Level I

Proper set up and use of batter frames and string lines is a real challenge for many wallers. We continually hear from examiners that poor use of string lines is one of the biggest reasons that wallers fail certification tests. You will learn multiple ways to build frames and use string lines to improve the efficiency of your building process and quality of the walls you build. PREREQUISITE: This workshop is intended for wallers who have taken one or more prior workshops, are level 1 or higher certified, or have experience building stone walls.
