This certification is for personnel involved in laboratory testing for determination of compressive and flexural strength of concrete. A working knowledge of the following ASTM standards is required for this certification:

  • ASTM C1610 Standard Test Method for Static Segregation of Self-Consolidating Concrete Using Column Technique

  • ASTM C1611 Standard Test Method for Slump Flow of Self-Consolidating Concrete

  • ASTM C1621 Standard Test Method for Passing Ability of Self-Consolidating Concrete by J-Ring

  • ASTM C1712 Standard Test Method for Rapid Assessment of Static Segregation Resistance of Self-Consolidating Concrete Using Penetration Test

  • ASTM C1758 Standard Practice for Fabricating Test Specimens with Self-Consolidating Concrete


ACI will grant certification only to those applicants who meet both criteria:

  • A passing grade on the Written Examination; and

  • Successful completion of the ACI Performance Examination


The one-hour written examination is “closed book” and consists of approximately 50 multiple choice questions. The performance exam, which is also "closed book," requires you to perform or describe all of the required procedures for each ASTM standard. Once you pass both the written and performance exams, you are certified as a Concrete Strength Testing Technician for five years.

Certification registration fees include the current ACI Study Guide, procedure review session, written and performance exams. The mandatory procedure review consists of an oral presentation of the testing procedures. THIS IS NOT A TRAINING COURSE!
