ASTM Online Construction Training

    Learn proper testing procedures, prepare for the ACI exam, and advance your skills.


    Professional, Comprehensive, and Cost-effective Training

    ASTM's Construction Materials Technician Series enables QA/QC technicians in the construction industry to advance their skills using leading, self-guided, computer-based training.

    The series is ideal for those preparing to become certified testing technicians through the American Concrete Institute (ACI), National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technologies (NICET), or a state agency such as the Department of Transportation (DOT).


    These courses are registered with the American Institute of Architects Continuing Education Systems for continuing professional education. Credit(s) earned on completion of this course will be reported to AIA CES for AIA members. Certificates of Completion for both AIA members and non-AIA members are available upon course completion.
