• Sufficient insight to recognize satisfactory application techniques, and actions which will lead to a poor-quality product. We expect various types of individuals will want to attend this course, including Concrete Construction Inspectors; Transportation Construction Inspectors; ACI Concrete Field Testing Technicians—Grade I; ACI Special Inspectors; Engineers or Specifiers who desire or are required to possess additional education to properly inspect shotcrete operations on projects; and Building Officials who desire further knowledge of acceptable shotcrete placement methods. In future education seminars where a fee is charged, we will include copies of ACI 506.2-13, “Specification for Shotcrete,” and ACI 506R-16, “Guide to Shotcrete,” and shotcrete-related ASTM specifications with the session registration fee. We should also note that ACI is working on an ACI Shotcrete Inspector certification that will use the completion of our ASA education session as a method for demonstrating experience in shotcrete inspection. ASA CONTRACTOR QUALIFICATION PROGRAM The Board has reviewed and approved a 1-day seminar that will be a prerequisite for shotcrete contractors seeking qualification by ASA. The Contractor Qualification Committee is close to finishing a written exam that will be administered after taking the seminar to demonstrate the individual attendee’s knowledge of shotcrete contracting. Once the exam is completed, we will be conducting a regional session of two with member companies to gather feedback and refine the final product. We anticipate a public rollout by our 20th Anniversary event in March 2018.
