    **** AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT ****

    In regards to requests for accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act, it is not the Sponsoring Group’s responsibility to judge whether or not the individual could do the job if certification is granted. The Sponsoring Group’s only concern is whether or not the individual’s request for accommodation can be provided for and is reasonable. Under the act, the individual making the request must provide written documentation from a doctor or other healthcare provider. The individual must also provide a reasonable amount of lead time to fulfill the special request. We recommend that you include your ADA policy on your web site and/or certification registration forms. The following is provided as an example: 

    “If you have a disability that may impact your participation in this activity, please check here and append a statement regarding your disability-related needs. Someone will contact you prior to the program to discuss accommodations. We cannot assure the availability of appropriate accommodations without prior written notification of need.”

    Upon receipt of a request for ADA accommodation please contact John Nehasil at john.nehasil@concrete.org for further instruction. Be sure to copy aciscc@cox.net on your request!

    Please join us this year to become part of the certified technicians of standards that we strive to uphold.  Experience and knowledge of concrete testing of the previously mentioned ASTM/AASHTO procedures is highly recommended.

    Contact Heather Caya at aciscc@cox.net if you need to reschedule or cancel. The fee will be $75 for either.

    Please register online regardless of how you pay to reserve your spot!
