The American Concrete Institute, in partnership with Elsevier Inc., has launched a new online training program, ACI eLearning. Through ACI eLearning, concrete industry professionals have the opportunity to participate in ACI training programs on a variety of industry-critical topics and earn CEUs online.
Currently, participants can take ACI Certification training programs for Concrete Field Testing Technician – Grade I. A program for Concrete Strength Testing Technician will be available soon. Both courses include practice exams, demonstration videos of tests covered in the certification programs, and a final assessment test of overall knowledge of the ASTM standards covered in each module.
Participants can access the training programs and their resources as needed, and a training acknowledgement document will be issued by ACI. Each of these courses include modules that prepare individuals for the in-person written and performance examinations required to receive ACI Certification.
By 2011, ACI plans to launch eLearning courses covering up to 70 instructional modules.
