Yes, you are missing something. Not an insult.

You get your Structural concrete cert from ICC, take the test at Pearson Vue. When you pass this ICC gives you a cert saying you passed the test successfully.

Then you need to get your ACI field tech grade one. This is where you are taught how to make cylinders and slump tests etc. This is a course, two 4 hour Wednesday nights, then two 4 hour Saturdays, the last Saturday you do a performance test and a written test.

You are now an "Associate structural Concrete Inspector", if you provide enough experience to ACI, they will send you another cert saying you are "Certified Concrete" inspector.

Basically, one is an apprentice and one is a journeyman.

I am going off my memory of my experience, so, You will have to contact ACI and ICC to get the precise procedure. is your southern California's ACI access to the classes.

I want to get ICC structural concrete certification. In order to get certification I need 2 years of concrete inspection. This is counterintuitive, am I missing something?
