Gain fundamental education or become certified as a concrete surface repair technician through ICRI’s online Concrete Surface Repair Technician Program (CSRT). Whether you are new to concrete repair or experienced, this program has something for you!

The Concrete Surface Repair Technician (CSRT) program was developed in response to industry demand and code language. ACI 562-19, “Code Requirements for Assessment, Repair, and Rehabilitation of Existing Concrete Structures,” outlines repair inspector qualifications for the inspection of concrete repairs and designates ICRI Concrete Surface Repair Technicians as qualified inspectors.

The CSRT program is a competency-based program using current best practices for online training and evaluation and consists of two (2) course options:

  • Education Course, offering you fundamental education in concrete surface repair; and
  • Certification Course, offering you full certification as a concrete surface repair technician
