ACI launches SCC technician certification for industry professionals 

The American Concrete Institute (ACI) has released its Self-Consolidating Concrete Testing Technician certification. The course is aimed at professionals working with and testing self-consolidating concrete (SCC) on a regular basis. 

This programme certifies individuals based on their technical knowledge and on their ability to perform five ASTM test methods. These processes have been developed for self-consolidating concrete (SCC) and are used to measure fresh properties, and include:

  • ASTM C1610: Standard Test Method for Static Segregation of SCC Using Column Technique
  • ASTM C1611: Standard Test Method for Slump Flow of SCC
  • ASTM C 1621: Standard Test Method for Passing Ability of SCC by J-Ring
  • ASTM C1712: Standard Test Method for Rapid Assessment of Static Segregation Resistance of SCC Using Penetration Test
  • ASTM C175: Standard Test Method for Fabrication of a Test Specimen with SCC

John Nehasil, managing director, certification, ACI, says ACI and ASTM members developed tests to measure and monitor the fresh or plastic characteristics of SCC.

“Near the end of the development stage, the industry recognized the need and importance of an ACI certification program to ensure these test methods were performed correctly,” Nehasil adds.

Individuals will need to take part in a written exam and performance test. The certification is offered through ACI’s global network of more than 120 sponsoring groups in local concrete communities.
