NRMCA Pervious Concrete Contractor Certification Sponsored by the WRMCA Program Summary:
With increasing interest in pervious concrete, the NRMCA has developed a certification program for contractors quali-
fied to place pervious concrete. 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

Pervious Concrete Craftsman
       Prerequisite – Current Certification as ACI Flatwork Finisher Certification

Successful completion of written Pervious Concrete Contractor exam – 70% passing score
Documentation of 3,000 hours of work experience in all aspects of placing pervious concrete pavement
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

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 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.
