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).
Each course includes:
ASTM Learning Center
All ASTM online courses are available by subscription on ASTM's Learning Center. The Learning Center provides advanced features that let you set up learning plans, track learning progress and compliance, and run reports.
This course covers the determination of relative density (specific gravity) and the absorption of coarse aggregates. The relative density (specific gravity), a dimensionless quantity, is expressed as oven-dry (OD), saturated-surface-dry (SSD), or as apparent relative density (apparent specific gravity). The OD relative density is determined after drying the aggregate. The SSD relative density and absorption are determined after soaking the aggregate in water for a prescribed duration.
By the end of this course you will be able to:
Anyone who runs the C127 test method or who needs an understanding of the test method and how it is properly run.
CEUs: .1 or 1 PDH
Certificate: A certificate is available upon successful completion of the course and an 80% or higher score on the exam.
