Initial Qualification Requirements:

  • ACI Concrete Field Testing Tech Grade 1 certification

  • Pass FDOT Concrete Field Inspector Spec. Written exam


Re-Qualification Requirement:

  • Same as Initial Qualification

Concrete Field Qualification has two Levels, Level 1 & Level 2.

  • Concrete Field Technician Level 1 requires the following certifications:

    • FDOT Concrete Field Inspector Specification (class we offer, CTQP class)

    • ACI Concrete Field Technician

      • Recommended Training Course for ACI Certificate, CMEC, http://www.cmec.org

      • The Level 1 qualification is good for 5 years.  Since both certifications above are required, the overall qualification expiration date is based on whichever above certification expires first. 

        • For example:  FDOT CF class expires 1/1/15 and ACI CF expires 5/1/15.  The expiration date will be 1/1/20.  The student then needs to re-certify their FDOT CF class before 1/1/20, then the qualification expiration date will become 5/1/20, until the student re-certifies the ACI CF, then the overall expiration will become 5 years from the latest FDOT CF qualification.  Whichever one expires first, that’s what the qualification overall expiration date is based on.

  • Concrete Field Technician Level 2 requires the following certifications:

    • FDOT Concrete Field Inspector Specification (class we offer, CTQP class)(same as Level 1)

    • ACI Concrete Field Technician (Recommended Training Course through CMEC, http://www.cmec.org) (same as Level 1)

    • ACI Construction Transportation Concrete Inspection (CTCI) (Recommended Training Course through CMEC, http://www.cmec.org)

    • The Level 2 qualification works just like the Level 1, with regards to the expiration dates, but now there are three certifications to watch expiration dates on.
