Courses

The Field Concrete Technician Certification Course

The Field Concrete Technician Certification Course is developed with an aim of certifying Concrete technicians who will be qualified to conduct field tests on fresh Concrete. This Certification program is designed to upgrade the quality of Concrete construction in the local construction and also to prepare the local construction industry for possible future mandatory certification. The objective of the Field Concrete Technician Certification program is to help the Concrete technician to gain more self-confidence in the job, and ultimately, instill greater confidence in the entire construction team and the general public as well.

 

Certificate in Concrete Technology

With effect from 1 October 2010, for Ready-Mixed Concrete (RMC) Certification, Building and Construction Authority (BCA) will require batching plants to be certified by certification bodies accredited under Singapore Accreditation Council’s Accreditation Scheme. This RMC certification will be based on the new Singapore Standards SS EN 206-1 (Concrete – Specification, performance, production and conformity) and SS 544
(Concrete – Complementary Singapore Standard to SS EN 206-1). This certificate course in concrete technology is jointly organised by the BCA Academy, the Singapore Concrete Institute (SCI) and the American Concrete Institute-Singapore Chapter (ACI-SC) to familiarize technical personnel in the concrete industry with the certification scheme.

 

Seminars

ACI-SC regularly organises educational seminars to spread the knowledge on Concrete technology and also to provide a forum to discuss the local Concrete related issues.

ACI-SC's Upcoming Courses and Seminars

One Belt One Road Southeast Asia Concxrete Technology Forum

Date:

27th March 2018

 

Duration: One Day

 

Venue: Marina Mandarin Hotel Singapore

On behalf of the American Concrete Institute (ACI) – Singapore Chapter and School of Materials Science and Engineering, Tongji University, joint Organisers of the 1st “One Belt One Road South East Asia Concrete Technology Forum with the theme “Innovation in Concrete Technology”, we wish to invite you to participate in this interesting Industry Forum to be held on 27th March 2018 in Singapore.

The Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), otherwise known as One Belt, One Road or “一带一路” focuses mainly on infrastructure investment, construction materials, railway and highway , connecting over 65 countries to a mega infrastructure project with a cumulative investment over an indefinite timescale worth multi trillion of dollars which the Concrete industry is very much connected and involved.  This Forum is timely, riding on the Belt and Road initiative to bridge infrastructure gap for accelerating economic growth especially in the Asia Pacific Region.

The Forum will promote new challenges of innovation and sustainability, aims for the exchange of knowledge and provide opportunities for industry professionals, researchers, academics and students to network in the field.    

This One Day CPD certified Forum will gather some 13 renowned speakers both local and overseas to share their expertise and vast knowledge for the rapid advances and developments in Concrete Technology.

ACI's Regular Courses, Seminars & Events

Conventions

ACI conducts two conventions a year, one in the spring and one in the fall. Convention sites vary and are chosen to give as many members as possible an opportunity to attend. At each convention, technical, educational, and administrative committees conduct open meetings, and attendees are welcome. These meetings provide ample opportunity to meet and talk individually with some of the most prominent individuals and experts in the field of concrete technology. In addition to committee meetings, the convention program also includes technical and educational sessions, seminars, social events, and exhibits.

 

Seminars

ACI seminars are held throughout the U.S. and in several other countries. ACI's members-experts on the program topic-serve as instructors, and local ACI chapters cosponsor and handle on-site registration. These seminars are designed to keep the industry informed on current technology, as well as provide more basic information to those new to the field.
