The goal of this certification program is to ensure that knowledgeable contractors are selected to place the product and thereby minimize the chance for failure. The NRMCA Pervious Concrete Contractor Certification sponsored by the WRMCA is modeled after ACI ‘s Flatwork Finisher Certification. Two levels are possible: 1) Pervious Concrete Technician, which requires passing a written exam. A Pervious Concrete Technician is a person who is knowledgeable about proper procedures to place, consolidate, finish, edge, joint, cure and protect pervious con- crete pavements, but who lacks sufficient work experience to qualify as a concrete craftsman. 2) Pervious Concrete Craftsman, which requires passing the same exam plus some level of work experience and/or passing a performance exam component. A prerequisite is the ACI Flatwork Finisher certification which ensures that the craftsman knows the basic level of care needed for flatwork construction. Pervious Concrete Craftsman is more knowledgeable because he/she not only meets the Technician requirements but also has earned ACI Flatwork Finisher Certification and, through documented work experience, can demonstrated the ability to place, consolidate, finish, edge, joint, cure and protect pervious concrete pavements. Course Content: • What a concrete craftsman needs to know about pervious concrete • Pervious concrete mixtures and production • Tools and Equipment • General design principles of pervious pavements • Pervious concrete construction • Maintenance and troubleshooting CERTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS: Pervious Concrete Craftsman Prerequisite – Current Certification as ACI Flatwork Finisher Certification Successful completion of written Pervious Concrete Contractor exam – 70% passing score AND Documentation of 3,000 hours of work experience in all aspects of placing pervious concrete pavement OR Documentation of 1,500 hours and successfully complete the NRMCA performance examination Documentation of work experience must be reported on form PCC8 Craftsman Work Experience Affidavit (form available on WRMCA website). Pervious Concrete Technician Successful completion of written Pervious Concrete Contractor exam – 70% passing score. Exam Information The two-hour written examination is "closed book," consisting of approximately 50 multiple-choice questions. The passing grade for the written examination is 70% During the performance examination, each examinee must demonstrate procedures for placing, consolidation, finish- ing, edging, jointing and beginning curing a pervious concrete slab. The examiner will observe and evaluate the tech- niques used and record passing or failing grades on the various individual procedures. A passing grade is defined as "no significant variation from proper procedure and no more than two variations from proper technique in the use of the tools." The work experience must include placing, consolidation, finishing, edging, jointing and curing of pervious concrete. Verification of the amount and range of work experience by the applicant's employer(s) is required and should be sub- mitted on PCC8 Craftsman Work Experience Affidavit Form. Recertification Recertification is required every five years and requires successful completion of a written examination. If a previous craftsman certification has been expired by more than six months, recertification will require completion of both the performance/work experience affidavit and the written exam.
