NYSSPE offers ACI Grade 1 Field Testing Technician with 10 PDHS

NYSSPE is excited to be offering a seminar on ACI Grade 1 Field Testing Technician (10 PDHs ) on September 25th , 27th and 30th, 2017.

This intense multiple session training seminar will prepare participants for the one (1) day exam to become an ACI Concrete Grade 1 Field Testing Technician which is required as part of the International Building Code (IBC) requirement for Special Inspections for Reinforced Concrete Structures. This certification program is one of the most commonly specified training requirements for concrete projects in the metropolitan area (click here for registration information).

The types of certification received will be as follows:

A Concrete Field Testing Technician—Grade 1 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.

A Concrete Construction Special Inspector is a person qualified to inspect and record the results of concrete construction inspection based on codes and job specifications. The program covers inspection during pre-placement, placement, and post-placement operations.

An Associate Concrete Construction Special Inspector is a person who is knowledgeable about inspection procedures for concrete construction, including pre-placement, placement, and post-placement operations; but does not have the experience required to qualify as an ACI Concrete Construction Special Inspector.

The program requires a working knowledge of the following ASTM test methods and practices:

◾C1064/C1064M – Temperature of Freshly Mixed Hydraulic-Cement Concrete
◾C172 – Sampling Freshly Mixed Concrete
◾C143/C143M – Slump of Hydraulic-Cement Concrete
◾C138/C138M – Density (Unit Weight), Yield, and Air Content (Gravimetric) of Concrete
◾C231 – Air Content of Freshly Mixed Concrete by the Pressure Method
◾C173/C173M – Air Content of Freshly Mixed Concrete by the Volumetric Method
◾C31/C31M – Making and Curing Concrete Test Specimens in the Field

The materials listed above will be in the course Study Manual: All attendees will get a copy of this manual, it’s included in the cost (a $110 value).

This program is a prerequisite for ACI Concrete Construction Special Inspector: which is the second part of the program required to become a concrete construction special inspector. ACI Concrete Construction Special Inspector seminar and exam will be offered by NYSSPE on October 11, 17, 19, 21, 2017. This program will include an additional 16 PDHs.
