ACI/NCDOT Concrete Field Technician Grade 1 Certification School

The Construction Extension Program, part of the Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering (CCEE) at North Carolina State University (NCSU), provides training on Concrete Field Testing through two programs:

  • NCSU Concrete School
  • Custom Concrete Training Programs

NCSU Concrete School

The Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering at NC State University (NCSU) has agreed with the NC Department of Transportation Materials and Tests Unit (NCDOT-M&T) to provide training and continuing education to concrete industry clients.

NCSU, with the support of the NCDOT Materials and Tests Unit, provides Concrete Field Technician certification in accordance with ACI and NCDOT requirements. NCSU has outstanding concrete professionals and educators with a long and distinguished association with the American Concrete Institute and one of the most modern and complete laboratory facilities in the United States.

The NCSU Concrete School is held at NCSU facilities and follows the same format as the NCDOT Concrete School and requires three (3) days to complete. ACI and NCDOT Certifications will be awarded after a demonstration of adequate performance on the field and written ACI and NCDOT examinations. The classroom portion of the training will be held in Mann Hall on North Campus or at the Research IV Building on Centennial Campus (a confirmed class location will be provided after registration). The field portion of the course will be held at the Constructed Facilities Laboratory (CFL), located on NCSU’s Centennial Campus (location map). The CFL offers a controlled environment so field tests will be held rain or shine.

The classes are limited to 25 students with sign-up on a first-come, first-served basis. After you register, and pay the appropriate fees, you will receive a confirmation letter and a map to the class location (within one week of the course), along with a copy of the NCDOT Concrete Field Technician Study Guide and the CP-1 (07) Technical Workbook for ACI Certification of Concrete Field Testing Technician-Grade 1 to help you prepare for the class.

For information on course schedule, location, space availability, registration, payment, and course prerequisites, please email Ashley Schwed or Carolyn Howard, call 919-513-2798 or 919-513-0886. For general project information email Roberto Nunez or call him at 919-515-8408.

Custom Concrete Training Programs

The NCSU Concrete School can also provide custom training to companies needing to certify multiple students as an ACI Concrete Field Testing Technician – Grade I or an NCDOT Concrete Field Testing Technician. These courses can be offered at dates and locations to meet the specific needs of your company. For more information regarding custom programs, email Roberto Nunez or call him at 919-515-8408.
