Concrete Certification With ACI
Never before has the construction industry relied more on formal quality control and quality assurance methods to obtain a built environment that meets the needs of society. A key element in meeting quality control and quality assurance goals is a cadre of trained and qualified inspectors. To achieve that need the American Concrete Institute provides training materials and examinations. The Eastern Pennsylvania & Delaware Chapter (formerly the Delaware Valley Chapter) of ACI conducts review courses and administers exams in eastern Pennsylvania and Delaware.
Founded in 1904, the American Concrete Institute is an international technical and educational society dedicated to improving the design, construction, maintenance, and repair of concrete structures. The Eastern Pennsylvania & Delaware Chapter of ACI pursues the mission of the international organization in this locale.
At the present time the Eastern Pennsylvania & Delaware Chapter of ACI conducts review courses and exams for the following certifications (click on each for a complete description):
