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, certification program was revised back in 2020 and now includes the test standard CSA A23.2-19C Slump flow of concrete.
