U.S. Concrete Institute Launches New Seminar Series

The American Concrete Institute (ACI) (Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA) announced the launch of a series of seminars hosted at the group’s headquarters. The series is designed to enable concrete industry professionals to receive valuable information on a variety of topics, ACI explains.

The seminars will allow attendees to earn professional development hours (PDHs) and continuing education units (CEUs). Highly recognized speakers will offer face-to-face interaction, ACI says, with free resources and referencing tools distributed for use both during and after the seminar.

The first seminar, “ACI 562: Assessment, Repair, and Rehabilitation of Existing Concrete Structures,” will be held on Tuesday, October 30, 2018. The one-day seminar will help attendees learn how to use the ACI 562 code; learn about a design-basis code; and understand the different load combinations and reduction factors.

Future public seminar topics include “Concrete Slabs-on-Ground,” “Troubleshooting Concrete Construction,” and “Troubleshooting Concrete Forming and Shoring.” Those seminars will also be held at ACI’s headquarters.

More information on the public seminars is available at ACI’s web site.
