ICRI Becomes AIA Approved CES Provider
Historic Milestone to Assist Architects

St. Paul, MN (May 2019) – Continuing its commitment to the professional development of the concrete repair industry, the International Concrete Repair Institute (ICRI) has become an American Institute of Architects (AIA) approved provider for the AIA Continuing Education System (CES). By achieving this accreditation, ICRI becomes a part of the largest source of education for the design and building industry. Receiving the AIA accreditation is another milestone in the history of ICRI, an association of contractors, engineers, architects, consultants, and manufacturers that work together to improve the understanding of and training within the concrete repair industry

“Being an AIA approved CES provider affords ICRI with the opportunity to inform and educate licensed architects on common problematic issues in concrete and masonry structures, many of which are addressed in ICRI’s 18 Technical Guidelines,” said Mark LeMay, AIA, LEED AP, and 2019 ICRI President-Elect. “To help fulfill the mandatory continuing education requirements of AIA and state licensing boards, architects will now be able obtain CE credits through ICRI’s webinars, certification programs and other offerings. ICRI’s recognition as an approved provider of continuing education services by the American Institute of Architects should prove to be a “Win-Win” for both organizations!”

ICRI has a history of providing key training to their members and to the industry and currently provides Professional Development Units (PDHs) through technical presentations at its conventions and more. Concrete repair professionals are able to demonstrate their knowledge and abilities by achieving certification through ICRI’s industry setting programs, Concrete Surface Repair Technician (CSRT) and Concrete Slab Moisture Testing Technician (CSMTT).

“In today’s fast paced environment, providing AIA CES credits is a value-added proposition to the continued education and training for AIA professionals. Achieving provider status within AIA allows ICRI to expand its educational offerings and provide real time training which is necessary in an era where standards and accepted practices are rapidly changing. ICRI is now able to serve the architectural and specifying community with practical information regarding concrete testing, rehabilitation and repair.” said ICRI Certification Manager Steven Bruns, PE.
