ACI Concrete Strength Testing Technician 

This program consists of a 1-hour written exam and 2 hours for the performance (hands-on) exam.

A Concrete Strength Testing Technician is an individual who has demonstrated the knowledge and ability to properly perform, record, and report the results of four basic laboratory procedures related to the determination of concrete compressive and flexural strength.

Scope and Knowledge

The program requires a working knowledge of the following ASTM test methods and practices.

  • C617/C617M – 15—Capping Cylindrical Concrete Specimens
  • C1231/C1231M – 15—Unbonded Caps for Concrete Cylinders
  • C39/C39M – 18—Compressive Strength of Cylindrical Concrete Specimens
  • C78/C78M – 18—Flexural Strength of Concrete

The one-hour written examination is "closed book" and consists of 40 multiple-choice questions. There are 10 questions on each of the ASTM Standards. The performance examination is also "closed book" and requires actual demonstration of the required ASTM Standards. The examinee is judged on his/her ability to correctly perform or describe all of the required procedures for each standard.  There WILL NOT be a review session included in this session.

Please review the following guidelines for the day of the exam:

  • If you are sick, showing signs of COVID-19 or have been in close contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19, we would ask you to not attend the exam and you will be given a refund so long as 24hr advance notice is provided. Refunds will not be offered for other circumstances.
  • Non-contact temperature checks will be performed by the NCCACI Staff at Check-In. If temperature is at or above 100.4°F, the person will be asked to leave and no refund will be provided.
