ACI Grade 1 Field Testing Technician - 10 PDH
May 9, 11, 13, 2023 - Times, Locations and Cost Below

This intense two (2) night training seminar will prepare you for the one (1) day exam to become a ACI Concrete Grade 1 Field Testing Technician which is required as part of the International Building Code requirement for Special Inspections for Reinforced Concrete Structures.  This certification program is one of the most commonly specified training requirements for concrete projects in the metro area.

This program is a prerequisite for “ACI Concrete Construction Special Inspector": which is the second part of the program required to become a concrete construction special inspector.  This training will be offered April 18,20,26,29, 2023.

What Type of Certification Will I Receive?

A Concrete Field Testing Technician—Grade 1 is an individual who has demonstrated the knowledge and ability to properly perform and record the results of seven basic field tests on freshly mixed concrete.

A 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 program requires a working knowledge of the following
ASTM test methods and practices:

  • C1064/C1064M - Temperature of Freshly Mixed Hydraulic-Cement Concrete
  • C172 - Sampling Freshly Mixed Concrete
  • C143/C143M - Slump of Hydraulic-Cement Concrete
  • C138/C138M - Density (Unit Weight), Yield, and Air Content (Gravimetric) of Concrete
  • C231 - Air Content of Freshly Mixed Concrete by the Pressure Method
  • C173/C173M - Air Content of Freshly Mixed Concrete by the Volumetric Method
  • C31/C31M - Making and Curing Concrete Test Specimens in the Field

The materials listed above will be in the Study Manual: All attendees will get a copy of this manual, it’s included in cost a $130 value.
