    The certification was designed by ACI to promote better understanding of the ASTM procedures related to testing and acceptance of plastic concrete. This understanding will provide more reliable and accurate test results for better measurement of concrete performance.

    Certification requires successful completion of both a hands on performance and written exam.


    A Concrete Field Testing Technician Grade I 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: Upon successful completion of the program, participants will have an International Certification and better understanding of the following ASTM testing procedures:

    ASTM C 1064: Temperature of Freshly Mixed Portland Cement Concrete

    ASTM C 172: Sampling of Freshly Mixed Concrete

    ASTM C 143: Slump of Hydraulic Cement Concrete

    ASTM C 138: Unit Weight, Yield & Air Content (Gravametric) of Concrete

    ASTM C 231: Air Content of Freshly Mixed Concrete by Pressure Method

    ASTM C 173: Air Content of Freshly Mixed Concrete by Volumetric Method

    ASTM C 31: Making & Curing Concrete Test Specimens in the Field

    Certification is valid for 5 years.

    **Steel toe boots/shoes, gloves, mask and safety glasses required.

    **You must be physically able to perform the tests or request ADA accommodations from ACI's Certifications Department PRIOR to exam day.

    Design for Resilience and Sustainability

    Date: Wednesday, April 12, 2023

    Time: Noon – 1:00 pm CST 

    Cost: Free

    Speaker: Andy Horgan (Nudura Systems, Inc.) and Jim Schneider, LEED AP (PCI Mountain States)

    Registration Link: 


    Resilient design of buildings in the twenty-first century is imperative given increased intensity and frequency of extreme adverse climatic events.  Buildings must withstand environmental impacts to their exteriors while simultaneously protecting the occupants within and maintain operational functionality.

    In this presentation we will discuss how to incorporate concrete construction systems as a sustainable building assembly option to meet the challenges of designing and building energy efficient and resilient structures that can withstand most, if not all natural disasters.

    Architects, Engineers, General Contractors and Building Owners will gain a thorough understanding of concrete structural system benefits, including thermal envelope performance, design integration, construction processes, and renewable energy resources for consideration and implementation into overall building envelope design and construction.


               Andy Horgan              Jim Schneider, LEED AP


    Sponsors: This webinar was developed cooperatively by concrete-related associations from Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin.  The goal of the cooperative effort is to bring a greater awareness of cast-in-place concrete to the design and construction communities via quality continuing education programs.  (MCC, NDCC, SDRMCA, WRMCA)
