Concrete Certification


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 sessions 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 sessions and exams for the following certifications (click on each for a complete description):

Should you intend to take the Certification Examinations we highly recommend that you enroll in a review session prior to taking the exam. Those not wishing to enroll in the review should obtain the text package and undertake a self-study program.

Please check the certification page for current dates, locations, and pricing.

Should you not pass the written or performance exams you may register for and take a re-exam of the exam you have failed within one year‘s time starting at the date of the failed exam. After one year has passed you must take both written and performance exams.

Those examinees wishing to become members of the Eastern Pennsylvania & Delaware Chapter of ACI can apply for membership.  Click on the membership tab for information and the application.
