The ACI Concrete Field Testing Technician Grade I course will benefit all personnel involved in testing fresh concrete. ASTM C31, C94, and ACI 301 all require that technicians making and curing concrete test specimens for acceptance be certified ACI Concrete Field Testing Technicians. A working knowledge of the following ASTM Standards is required for this certification program: C-172 Sampling Freshly Mixed Concrete; C-143 Slump of Hydraulic Cement Concrete; C-138 Density (Unit Weight), Yield, & Air Content (Gravimetric) of Concrete; C-231 Air Content of Freshly Mixed Concrete by Pressure Method; C-173 Air Content of Freshly Mixed Concrete by Volumetric Method; C-31 Making and Curing Concrete Test Specimens in the Field; C-1064 Temperature of Freshly Mixed Portland Cement Concrete.

Ohio Concrete Professional Engineers conduct the one-day review and administer the written and performance examinations (see COVID-19 updates below). Examinations are graded by the American Concrete Institute (ACI). Technicians successfully completing both the written and performance examinations will receive a certificate and wallet card from ACI certifying them as ACI Concrete Field Testing Technician – Grade I (certification expires in 5 years). For recertification, ACI requires successful completion of both the performance and written examinations. Individuals may register for “ Full Exam Only”, however it is recommended that they register for the “Accelerated Course,” to review the current standards covered on the exam.

It is imperative that a valid e-mail address, for the registrant, is provided at the time of registration for communications confirmations, changes, and updates for all certifications.

We respectfully ask you to reschedule if you are sick, regardless of the illness.

If you have any questions or concerns, contact the Association office at 614-891-0210.
