ACI will grant certification to candidates who meet both of the following requirements:
- Passing score on the written examination, AND
- Successful completion of the performance examination.
The one-hour written examination is closed-book and consists of approximately 50 multiple-choice questions. There are between 6-10 questions on each of the ASTM test methods and practices.
