The American Concrete Institute (ACI) has released its new ACI Certification Verify app. The app allows users to quickly and easily verify the status of ACI-certified individuals through three search options: (1) verify an individual’s certification ID number, (2) search by an individual’s name, and (3) find the total number of ACI-certified individuals in an area.
ACI has certified more than 400,000 concrete finishers, technicians, supervisors, inspectors, managers and more since the 1980s. Currently, there are more than 123,000 active ACI certifications across 25+ popular programs worldwide.
“The ACI Certification Verify app is the perfect tool to use on the jobsite,” says John W. Nehasil, ACI managing director of certification. “Using simply a phone or tablet, anyone can easily verify the status of people working on a particular project or find the total number of ACI-certified individuals in an area.”
Creating this app provides further value to those working in the field, who may not have quick and easy access to a computer. The ACI Certification Verify app helps the entire verification process move more quickly and easily so jobs can move forward, with the same functionality as its concrete.org/verify web-based verification tool.
The app is currently available in iOS platforms and available to to download through the Apple App Store. An Android version is expected to be available soon.
“ACI-certified workers are critically important to the concrete industry, as they provide assurance that testing, placing and inspecting are performed correctly. Through our certification programs, ACI is strengthening the workforce with competent and proven individuals who can perform their jobs in a way that will help ensure longevity for the industry,” adds Nehasil.
