Unfortunately, little essential knowledge and understanding of concrete are considered in the majority of engineering degree or diploma programs in India. As a result, engineers who join the industry have to acquire concrete-related experience in the field and through continuing education. This lack of training created a great need for a structured program to train and certify concrete practitioners in various aspects of concrete and related activities. Luckily, that program exists in the form of ACI certification.
