As part of the Technician II credential, students will have the opportunity to earn the American Concrete Institute Field Testing certification; the International Concrete Repair Institute Level 1 and 2 certifications; and the Insulated Concrete Forms certification.

Program Goals

Upon completion of this credential, a student should be able to:
  • analyze applications and procedures for repair or replacement of defective concrete work.
  • design concrete mixes based on application and purpose.
  • identify building codes specific to both commercial and residential concrete including American Concrete Institute (ACI) testing for air, temperature, and slump.
  • establish parameters and set elevations for concrete formwork according to required specifications.
  • successfully obtain professional industry certifications.
