In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, PCI is offering special reduced price online training for quality control technicians to prepare for PCI personnel certification examinations right from the comfort of your own home or office.
The Level I Online Course will cover each day of course without the exam; however, the registration price includes one free proctored exam per level. All attendees are asked to schedule and take the exam with a registered proctor after taking the course. The PCI Proctored Exam program will be discussed in the class and more information about PCI’s Proctored Exam Program and the PCI Personnel Certification Program will be provided upon registration.
Level I begins the series of exciting quality control Schools and starts off with a review of PCI certification programs, both plant and personnel. The curriculum was developed especially for quality control personnel, engineers, technician/managers, plant managers/superintendents, consulting engineers, and technicians. However, the schools and certifications are open to everyone involved in planning, operations, and quality control in the precast products industry.
The curriculum continues at Level II with intermediate concrete topics and mix design concepts. Prestressing is introduced - attendees run calculations and discuss correction factors.The Level I & II program is packed with activities: round-table discussions, practice sessions, student-instructor interaction, and certification examinations. Students will receive a copy of the valuable Quality Control Technician/Inspector Level I & II Training Manual, TM-101, plus class notes and extensive reference material.
The course is three (3) sessions long and covers basic concrete topics; mix design concepts (such as the water/cementitious ratio) are introduced and as well as beginning design concepts such as concrete strength, conventional reinforcing bars, and concrete testing
