The precast/prestressed concrete industry depends on a high level of quality in the concrete products and structures it produces. PCI knows that an effective quality control program requires knowledgeable and motivated personnel to achieve the level of quality being demanded, so PCI offers training courses (QC Schools) for PCI Personnel Certification candidates. The courses are designed to improve the candidate’s knowledge, enhance their quality control skills and abilities, and prepare them for PCI personnel certification examinations.
The PCI QC Schools and PCI personnel certifications are available to everyone inside and outside of PCI membership; to persons with physical disabilities; and without regard to race, color or creed. The courses are beneficial for any individual in the precast concrete industry who seeks to improve their knowledge or attain certification. The courses are well suited for those who are involved in the areas of planning, operations, and quality control in the precast products industry.
Candidates who are interested in the training courses and attaining PCI Personnel Certification should be qualified for the type and level of certification that they seek. More information regarding additional certification requirements (including related experience requirements) can be found under PCI Personnel Certification Programs. Candidates who do not meet the qualification requirements prior to successfully completing an exam have one (1) year from the date of the certification exam to provide evidence of attaining the qualification requirement(s).
