    Certification as an ACI certified Flatwork Finisher or Flatwork Finishing Technician is a professional designation gaining recognition throughout the United States. The program is useful for experienced and apprentice concrete finishers to sharpen and round out their knowledge of concrete finishing. The class session is followed by a written examination. Applicants having a minimum of 4,500 hours of concrete finishing experience (2+ years), who pass the test will be Certified Concrete Flatwork Finishers. Applicants who pass the test, but do not have the required work experience, will be Certified Concrete Flatwork Technicians.

    Please be aware, owners, designers and project specifications are beginning to require this certification for concrete professionals working on their projects. This is a growing trend that we expect will increase in the future.

    PRE-CLASS INSTRUCTIONS
    ***PLEASE READ***
    Thank you for your interest in becoming certified as an ACI Flatwork Finisher or Flatwork Finishing Technician.  In order to meet the growing demand of this program, we have recently made some changes in order to offer it as a one-day class.  Historically, ACI offered this class as nine hours of lecture with a two hour written examination, over the course of four weekday evenings.  Although the time spent on lecture has now been reduced to five hours, the requirements placed upon the students to pass the examination remain the same.  

    Your course workbook is intentionally supplied to you in advance of your scheduled class date.  We strongly recommend that you thoroughly study the workbook prior to attending the classroom instruction.  The lecture that will be offered is a review of each chapter section, and a clarification of the core concepts.  There is not enough time to teach all of the concepts and applications of this course.  The responsibility lies upon the student to have a strong understanding of the course content before arriving to class.

    As a reminder, applicants having a minimum of 4,500 hours of concrete finishing experience (2+ years), who pass the test will be Certified Concrete Flatwork Finishers.  Applicants who pass the test, but do not have the required work experience, will be Certified Concrete Flatwork Technicians.

    We look forward to seeing you in class, well-prepared, and we hope you find this course instruction a valuable learning opportunity.  Please bring a simple-use calculator (smart phones and TI “graphing” calculators are NOT allowed), a photo ID and a #2 pencil.
