“A Concrete Flatwork Associate (formerly Concrete Flatwork Technician) is a person who has demonstrated knowledge (via a written examination) on proper procedures to place, consolidate, finish, edge, joint, cure and protect concrete flatwork.
A Concrete Flatwork Finisher (formerly Concrete Flatwork Tradesman) is a craftsman who has demonstrated the skills (via a hands-on performance exam) necessary to place, consolidate, finish, edge, joint, cure and protect concrete flatwork, but who lacks sufficient work experience to qualify as a concrete flatwork finisher.
An Advanced Concrete Flatwork Finisher (formerly Concrete Flatwork Finisher and Technician) is a craftsman who has demonstrated the knowledge AND skills and/or experience necessary to place, consolidate, finish, edge, joint, cure and protect concrete flatwork.
Note, the in-person courses offered includes a half-day refresher/review prior to the written exam only. The CRMCA does NOT provide the on-hands performance exam to meet the requirements of a Concrete Flatwork Finisher. If the appropriate work experience is met, an individual can complete the written exam and complete the Experience Form (prior to your scheduled session) to obtain the title Advanced Concrete Flatwork Finisher. For more information on the certification or the certification requirements, please click here. If you’d like to schedule a group or individual from your company for either the review/exam or just the exam, please contact JT Mesite at email@example.com.
An alternative option is to take the exam at a Prometric testing facility. You must contact Prometric directly to schedule your examination at 800.722.2857 or www.prometric.om. If you choose this option, you must purchase the Craftsman Workbook and/or DVD from ACI.
