Masonry Testing Technician Training Programs

Proper masonry testing is critical to provide assurance that materials and techniques meet the designer's intent. Come to TMS's newest seminar to learn about how samples should be taken, stored, and tested. Or take the new ACI Certification Exams to be recognized as a Certified Masonry Testing Technician.
Proper masonry testing is critical to provide assurance that materials and techniques meet the designer’s intent.

The American Concrete Institute (ACI) in cooperation with The Masonry Society (TMS) and other industry organizations recently completed two new certification programs – the first for Masonry Field Testing Technicians and the second for Masonry Laboratory Technicians. The programs are intended to recognize qualified technicians performing various masonry tests, while helping to ensure testing is performed properly. To help prepare testing technicians for the Certification Examinations, The Masonry Society will be offering intensive education review sessions and the ACI Certification Examinations.

Following is the list of ASTM standards used in the ACI Masonry Testing Technician Certification Program.

For the Masonry Field Testing Technician, the following ASTM test methods are currently used. Make certain to check with ACI before taking the examination to ensure you have the correct edition.

  • ASTM C67/C67M – 18—Sampling and Testing Brick and Structural Clay Tile
  • ASTM C140/C140M – 18a—Sampling and Testing Concrete Masonry Units and Related Units
  • ASTM C780 – 18a including Annex—Preconstruction and Construction Evaluation of Mortars for Plain and Reinforced Unit Masonry
  • ASTM C1019 – 18—Sampling and Testing Grout
