ACI Certification Training

The Somero Concrete Institute is pleased to offer an all-new ACI accredited course that’s open to all industry professionals. Facilitated by 25-time Golden Trowel Award Winner, Bryan Birdwell, the comprehensive ACI program includes everything professionals need to receive the ACI CFTM-P certification.

One of the main benefits of our ACI course is the exam’s format. In lieu of a written exam for the ACI Flatwork Finisher program, the ACI Tradesman certification exam is evaluated on hands-on performance. Not only is the hands-on exam a preferred format of participants, it’s also helpful when dealing with potential job site situations like language barriers. In addition to the practical knowledge and experience, many employers are beginning to include this ACI certification as a requirement for candidates.

Please note accommodations in the Fort Myers area can be pricey, and depending on when you visit, very hard to find. Be advised that the months of December through March constitute peak vacation season in southwest Florida, so hotels and restaurants are especially busy during that time. We strongly advise reserving your accommodations BEFORE arriving.
