Civil Tech trainees prepare for Concrete Field Testing work

The Civil Technology trainees has been training for the whole semester in order for them to be qualified to work as Concrete Field Testing Technicians. It is a part of their major courses in Materials testing and Concrete Technology. The trainees learned to perform tests on fresh concrete based on ASTM Standards C172- Sampling, C143- Slump, C1064-Temperature, C231 and C173 for Air content, C138-Density and C31- Making of Cylinder samples. Trainees will apply these skills and knowledge when they work as assistant materials engineer, concrete field technician or laboratory technician. Trainees can land a job in companies whose business is in concrete ready mix, precast, and materials testing services. Trainees can also take an international certification by American Concrete Institute (ACI) which is the Concrete Field Testing Technician Grade 1.
