ACI Field Grade 1 Training & Review Courses Scheduled for 2023
The CRMCA is excited to announce a new in-person training and review option for individuals wishing to prepare for the ACI Field Grade 1 Exam and Performance Exam. This course provides in-person training which will teach and review the materials covered in the written and performance examinations for the ACI Concrete Field Testing Technician - Grade Level 1 as described below:
"Concrete Field Testing Technician—Grade I 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."
Persons preparing for these exams should also obtain and study the publication that is used as the primary text reference for these certifications. Copies of this book may be obtained by contacting ACI Carolinas directly. Please note this course is for training and review purposes and does not cover the in-person written exam and performance exam. We recommend using the course book along with the review materials presented in this course prior to your testing date. To sign up for the written exam and performance exam you will need to go through ACI Carolinas here.
This training is provided by the Carolinas Ready Mixed Concrete Association and the written exam and performance exam are provided by ACI Carolinas via separate registration.
