A study guide for the examinee, providing information and instructional material on the required ASTM testing procedures. ASTM Standards included are C172, C143, C138, C231, C173, C31, C1064, C29 and C94. Also included are ACI's Concrete Primer (SP-1), study questions, sample checklist, and practice exams. The ACI Certification Program for Concrete Field Testing Technician - Grade 1 has been developed for the purpose of certifying concrete technicians who have demonstrated the knowledge and ability to properly perform the basic field tests on freshly mixed concrete. The increasing demand for certification by many governmental agencies has made it desirable for ACI to accept leadership in creating and manufacturing a certification program to improve the accuracy and reliability of the field testing of freshly mixed concrete. In addition to upgrading the quality of concrete construction, this program is intended to prepare the industry for the possiblility of future mandatory certification, and to form the basis for higher level certification programs. Technicians who u[grade their skills and credentials through ACI certification will increase their own opportunities as well as contribute to the advancement of the industry. This Technician Workbook (CP-1) describes the operation of the ACI Certification Program and provides technical materials and directions necessary to prepare for the examinations.
