PTI offers training and certification workshops for field personnel
shown to comply with requirements of IBC, ACI 318, and ACI 301. Proper
training and education of personnel involved in post-tensioning (PT)
field operations—installers, inspectors, engineers, and others—are
vital to ensuring the performance, serviceability, durability, and
safety of PT concrete construction. Please refer to the workshop
descriptions for certification requirements and detailed flyers below
outlining important course information and pricing.
Which Workshop Do I Need?
- Single-Strand Unbonded
- Multistrand Bonded or Unbonded
High-rise, slab-on-ground, and light commercial buildings in the US
are typically constructed with unbonded monostrand/single-strand
Bridges and infrastructure projects are typically constructed with
multistrand (bonded/grouted or unbonded/flexible fillers)
How Do I Achieve Level 2 Certification?
If you already have Level 1 Unbonded certification, you can obtain
Level 2 Unbonded certification in the following ways:
- If you originally took a Level 1&2 Unbonded workshop,
scored higher than 80% on your exam, you can just obtain the work
experience, submit the affidavit, and Level 2 certification will be
issued. You have up to 4 years from your original certification date to
submit the work experience.
- If you originally took a Level 1 Unbonded workshop, you may
register for the last two days of a Level 1&2 workshop, sit for the
exam, submit the work experience to obtain Level 2 certification.
- If you have Level 1 Multistrand and Grouted certification, you
must retake the entire workshop and submit the work experience
affidavit to obtain Level 2 Multistrand and Grouted certification.
