ACI has launched its Post-Installed Concrete Anchor Installation Inspector certification program to certify individuals who have demonstrated the knowledge required to properly inspect the installation of post-installed adhesive and mechanical anchors in concrete.
This new program builds upon the ACI Adhesive Anchor Installation Inspector certification program, and includes inspection of post-installed mechanical anchors. Both the new Post-Installed Concrete Anchor Installation Inspector program and existing Adhesive Anchor Installation Inspector program are cited in the new ACI 318-19: Building Codes Requirements for Structural Concrete and Commentary, released in June 2019.
“The Institute is in the process of working with our global network of sponsoring groups to update review session materials,” stated John W. Nehasil, Managing Director, Certification, American Concrete Institute. “The program is currently available through more than 40 of our sponsoring groups, and will be available at the upcoming ACI Convention in Cincinnati, Ohio, and World of Concrete in Las Vegas, Nevada. As the industry adopts the ACI 318-19 code, we expect demand for certified anchor inspectors to grow.”
ACI has discontinued admitting candidates into the Adhesive Anchor Installation Inspector program since that will be included in the new program. Additional information on the ACI Post-Installed Concrete Anchor Installation Inspector certification program, including a detailed job task analysis, is available at ACICertification.org.
