We are all having to deal with the great changes that COVID-19 has made to all aspects of our lives. As has been said by many others we are all in this TOGETHER.
As the community restrictions begin to be eased in various ways and in different counties and cities The American Concrete Institute Southern California Chapter is starting to plan to recommence our Certifications programs. We had cancelled some March and all April, May and June sessions. We will recommence sessions in July, beginning with Field Grade 1. Sessions will be offered firstly to those who had been registered in the sessions that were cancelled. When much of the backlog has been addressed, we will be opening up registrations again. Some of the less populated sessions, e.g. Flatwork Finisher will be able to be posted earlier.
There will be changes to how the sessions will be conducted. The Chapter is observing CDC guidelines for the sessions as well as requirements in-place by the State of California. Precautions will include registrants completing a questionnaire about possible expose or symptoms, the taking of temperatures of attendees prior to entry to facilities. Wearing of masks and social distancing will also apply. The Chapter has commissioned a professional services company to sanitize facilities just prior to sessions and after sessions for the safety of our examiners, the session attendees and the staff of the facility owners. During sessions there will also be personnel present who will sanitize chairs, benches etc. on an as needs basis.
We are looking forward to the recommencement of our certification sessions and, also soon being able to conduct our other programs.
In the meantime, we ask everyone to be diligent about their own, their families’, their coworkers and the community’s well-being and stay safe and well.
