ACI Custom Seminars
ACI's Educational Activities
ACI has a long history of delivering quality educational programs in the concrete field...and has been educating the industry through its public seminar programs since 1969. To date, over 50,000 concrete professionals have attended public seminars conducted by ACI.
Now you can bring this training and education expertise right to your doorstep by scheduling a custom seminar for your employees, customers, or members. Choose from a variety of topics such as: structural design, repair, troubleshooting, slabs-on-ground, and many more. Instructors are selected from a large pool of ACI committee members with experience as educators, engineers, contractors, consultants, material suppliers, and in other fields. These experts possess specific knowledge about the topics being presented.
The technical material covered in each seminar is based upon the most recent technical information developed through ACI's extensive technical committee structure, and represents the latest thinking of the industry's leading experts.
What Is Included?
Your investment for a custom seminar covers all development and speaker expenses for a one-day (7.5 hours) or two-day (15 hours) seminar. All seminars can be customized for the expected audience that may include engineers, architects, constructors, specifiers, material suppliers, and others who are part of the concrete design and construction community.
What Do You Need to Provide?
To assure a successful seminar experience, you should provide: a suitable meeting space, audio-visual equipment (slide, LCD, overhead projector), projection screen, microphone, and laser pointer; refreshments for lunch and scheduled breaks; and any reference materials you wish to provide the attendees.
ACI and the Instructors have invested a great deal of time and money into producing the intellectual property. This includes developing the seminar content, lectures, PowerPoint slide presentation, and Attendee Lecture Notes.
ACI will not allow the seminar to be video taped. Nor will ACI allow the seminar handouts to be used as part of, or in conjunction with, any other continuing education program. The seminars offered by ACI and the seminar handouts will remain the intellectual property of ACI.
Usually, two instructors will be assigned to teach your custom seminar. All ACI instructors are recognized experts in their fields and are intimately familiar with the basis for the technologies they teach.
Most seminars can be scheduled within 60 days of receiving your Notice to Proceed. If significant changes to the usual seminar program format or content are required, additional time may be needed to accommodate specific needs.
Professional Development Hours (PDH)
Continuing Education Units (CEU)
Custom seminars are a great way to get the training and continuing education credits your employees need, without the added expense of travel and extended time away from the office. PDHs are increasingly being required as a condition of maintaining Professional Engineer status. The CEU is an internationally recognized unit measuring accomplishment through continuing education. Attendees at ACI one-day seminars are eligible to receive 7.5 PDHs (0.75 CEUs). Two-day seminars are worth 15.0 PDHs (1.5 CEUs).
Training & Reference Materials
The cost of reference materials is in addition to the seminar fee. We require you to purchase speaker lecture notes for each attendee. There is an additional charge of $20.00 each. The speaker lecture notes serve as an excellent reference resource and give the attendee a place to take notes. Purchase of reference materials for all attendees is recommended, and a substantial discount (up to 50%) for ACI publications is available for custom seminar attendees.
Topics are readily available but can be tailored to meet your needs.
