This intense three (3) night training seminar will prepare you for the one (1) day exam to become a Concrete Construction Special Inspector.
accordance with the International Building Code (Chapter 17, Section 1705),
special inspections shall be required for concrete construction and other
building aspects that, in the opinion of the building official, requires full time
or periodic inspections and verification of construction materials and systems
to ensure conformance with applicable codes. In many juristications such
as New York City, most major projects require a certified special inspector to
conduct these inspections to support the Professional Engineer for the
site. The Concrete Construction Special Inspector certification provided
by the American Concrete Institute (ACI) is nation’s leading program for
providing this training and certification exam.
What Type of Certification Will I Receive?
Concrete Construction Special Inspector is a person
qualified to inspect and record the results of concrete construction inspection
based on codes and job specifications. The program covers inspection during
preplacement, placement, and post-placement operations.
An Associate Concrete Construction Special Inspector is a person who is knowledgeable about inspection procedures for concrete construction, including preplacement, placement, and post-placement operations; but does not have the experience required to qualify as an ACI Concrete Construction Special Inspector.
Scope and Knowledge The programs require a knowledge of concrete construction,
including plans reading, formwork installation and removal, reinforcements,
embedments, sampling and testing freshly mixed concrete, conveying, placing,
consolidation, finishing, jointing curing, and protection. The technical
resource materials used in these programs include the following:

Speaker: Jeffrey Stoicescu, PE
Jeffrey Stoicescu, PE, is an Examiner for the American Concrete Institute representing the Eastern New York Region Chapter as well as an Vice President at Langan Engineering and Environmental Services in New York, NY. Mr. Stoicescu has provided civil engineering services for more than 20 years on a wide range of major infrastructure projects around the world for major developments including the following market sectors: Transportation, Oil&Gas, Mining, Water/Wastewater, Federal Remediation, as well as commercial, industrial, and private developers. Mr. Stoicescu will infuse the training program with lessons learned from these projects to initiate discussions on interpretation of ACI codes and review of engineering drawings. Mr. Stoicescu has examined 1000s of students in the metro area over the past 15 years and will outline not only the technical training steps required to achieve the training but will provide a business case on why this training is a benefit to our organizations.
