Concrete Pump Operator


Concrete can get heavy, so someone has to be in charge of getting it to and from the places where it’s needed most. That’s where a Concrete Pump Operator comes in handy to seal the fate of a construction project. You’ll deal with concrete pumps that are truck-mounted, trailer-mounted, stationary, or on tower concrete placing booms.​

On the job, you’ll coordinate the placement of concrete at work sites, operate high-pressure pumps, perform pre-operational inspections, monitor equipment performance, and understand government legislation, site plans, and manufacturers’ manuals. And sometimes, you get to communicate with your coworkers with hand signals. ​
