FARMINGTON HILLS, MICH.—The American Concrete Institute (ACI), in partnership with Elsevier, Inc., launched an online training program called ACI eLearning. Through ACI eLearning, concrete industry professionals can participate in ACI training programs on a variety of industry-critical topics and earn CEUs online.
Currently, participants can participate in the ACI Certification training programs for Concrete Field Testing Technician—Grade I. Another program for Concrete Strength Testing Technician will be available soon. Both courses include practice exams, demonstration videos of all tests covered in these two ACI Certification programs, and a final assessment test of overall knowledge of the ASTM Standards covered in each module.
Additional eLearning topics may include why concrete tests are important for quality concrete construction, slab design, slab construction, anchorage for concrete, cracking in concrete, repair of deteriorated concrete, and formwork for concrete. By 2011, ACI plans to launch eLearning courses covering as many as 70 instructional modules. Discounts are available to ACI members.
