Training Course and Certification Examination

The Manitoba Chapter of the American Concrete Institute (ACI) is offering its annual training and examination session on April 26, 2019 for ACI certification of Concrete Flatwork Technician and Flatwork Finisher.

Specifications for many projects have required ACI Certified Flatwork Technicians and Finishers to be on site during floor finishing operations. Flatwork workers from all sectors will gain from this ACI training and certification. Such training can minimize call-backs and expensive repairs from owners and builders over defects caused by poor finishing practices. The designation of ACI Certified Concrete Flatwork Technician & Finisher can be added to your corporate ads, letterheads and business cards once you have received your full certification from ACI International.

Upgrade your finishing skills, minimize your call-backs and enhance your company’s reputation with ACI Certified crews by earning this prestigious ACI Certification.
