A Concrete Construction Special Inspector is a person qualified to inspect and record the results of concrete construction inspection based on codes and job specifications. The program covers inspection during pre-placement, placement, and post-placement operations.

A Concrete construction Inspector-in-Training is a person who is knowledgeable about inspection procedures for concrete construction, including pre-placement, placement and post-placement operations; but does not have the experience required to qualify as an ACI Concrete Construction Special inspector.

The programs requires a knowledge of concrete construction, including plans reading, formwork installation and removal, reinforcements, embedments, sampling and testing freshly mixed concrete, conveying, placing, consolidation, finishing, jointing curing, and protection.
