Illinois ACI chapter opens Certification Center

The Illinois Chapter of the American Concrete Institute recently celebrated the grand opening of their Certification Center, located in the western suburbs of Chicago, Illinois, USA.

This new facility, a first of its kind for an ACI Chapter, not only represents a valuable asset for the Chapter’s certification program, it is also a testament to the strategic thinking, foresight, and planning by the Chapter Board of Direction.

The new center will offer ACI’s Field Technician Grade I, Aggregates Testing Level I, Strength Testing Technician, Concrete Construction Special Inspector and Adhesive Anchor Installer certification programs on a regular basis at this location. Select programs at various locations throughout the state will also be offered through this facility, and the Chapter plans to partner with other associations to hold training and promotion meetings.

In a congratulatory letter to the Chapter, Ron Burg, ACI Executive Vice President singled out Chapter Director Mr. Peter Stamatopoulos for his efforts in bringing this vision to reality.

“This facility will help the Chapter maintain its 25-year history of providing successful certification programs while improving delivery of critical services to the concrete construction industry,” stated Burg. “It also clearly supports ACI’s strategic vision of a future where everyone has the knowledge needed to use concrete effectively to meet the demands of a changing world.”
