American Concrete Institute Opens Resource Center


The American Concrete Institute will soon open a third resource center in Columbia, Maryland, to serve the Mid-Atlantic concrete industry. The Mid-Atlantic Resource Center is anticipated to open for business on Sept. 5.

According to the institute, the new center will help meet an increased demand for ACI knowledge through hands-on training, educational offerings and access to ACI Certification Programs.

“The newest ACI Resource Center is strategically located in the Mid-Atlantic region to continue expanding access to ACI knowledge in large markets of the concrete construction industry,” said Michael Morrison, FACI, FASTM, ACI Certification Program Development Manager.

“We’re eager to bring regularly scheduled and on-demand certification programs, educational seminars, hands-on training, and more to the region.”

The ACI explains that its resource centers offer an array of custom training programs designed to communicate required skills and demonstrate test methods in order to achieve certification.

Additionally, the new Mid-Atlantic Resource Center will offer education programs on popular industry topics such as design, fundamentals, repair, slabs and more.

In April, the ACI also released its 2023 ACI Collection of Concrete Codes, Specifications and Practices, a collection that it deems to be the “most comprehensive and largest single source of information on concrete design, construction, materials and repair.”

The collection includes over 50 codes and specifications, along with more than 200 practices, including all guides, reports and education publications.

Additionally, the 2023 version reportedly includes dozens of newly published documents ranging from codes on fiber-reinforced polymer to guides for concrete rehabilitation, shotcrete and much more.

Other categories in the ACI Collection include concrete materials, properties, design, construction, reinforcement, specialized application, repair, structural analysis and innovation, plus popular topics such as slabs, formwork and masonry.

According to the ACI, the collection is available as an online subscription, a USB drive, and a nine-volume set of books. Special online access for multiple users, entire offices, and large multi-national companies, is also available.
