ACI offers nondestructive testing certification program

The American Concrete Institute (ACI) has launched a program to certify individuals who pass examinations by performing specified nondestructive tests on hardened concrete.

The ACI says the Nondestructive Testing Specialist – Concrete Strength certification program was developed under the guidance of ACI Committee 228 Nondestructive Testing.

This ACI committee identified the need to qualify those practitioners using these test methods in evaluating in-place concrete strength.

The program includes six test methods used in evaluating the in-place strength of hardened concrete, including pulse velocity, penetration resistance, rebound hammer, cast-in-place concrete cylinders, pullout strength and estimating concrete strength by the maturity method.

Michael Morrison, manager, certification program development at ACI, says: “We are working with our sponsoring groups and chapters to implement this program in their communities, as we are eager to help those individuals looking to expand their concrete inspection expertise.

“We are also looking into ways to offer expanded training opportunities to prepare for the examination, including online learning courses.”
