June 2022 Edmonton - ACI CSA Standards Concrete Field Testing Technician Certification
The ACI CSA Standards Concrete Field Testing Technician Certification Program has been developed for the purpose of certifying concrete testing technicians who have demonstrated the knowledge and ability to perform, properly, the basic field tests on plastic concrete. With ever growing prevalence of the use of Self Consolidating Concrete (SCC) in the field, this newly revised certification program now includes the test standard CSA A23.2-19C Slump flow of concrete.
Certification of field test personnel by CSA International, Canadian Council of Independent Laboratories (CCIL) or the ACI Concrete Field Testing Technician Grade 1 (Newly revised and renamed ACI CSA Standards Concrete Field Testing Technician) Certification Program is a requirement of the CSA standard for concrete A23.1 Concrete materials and methods of concrete construction published by Canadian Standards Association (CSA).
