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,

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, (same as Level 1)
-ACI Construction Transportation Concrete Inspection (CTCI) (Recommended Training Course through CMEC,​

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.
