It started back in 1977 when the MCA in partnership with MDOT and industry offered the first Level I Certification. Since the first Michigan-based certification course in 1977, additional programs were added to meet the growing demands of having certified professionals design, place, finish, and test concrete. 

Today, the MCA offers a variety of certification programs.

Preventing Scaling of Concrete Surfaces in Michigan
11 months 4 weeks ago

Scaling, as defined by the American Concrete Institute (ACI) Committee 116, is the “local flaking or peeling away of the near-surface portion of hardened concrete or mortar.” Sometimes called mortar flaking when it occurs just over the aggregates near the surface, it is primarily a physical action created by hydraulic pressures from repeated freeze-thaw cycles within the concrete. The expansive forces caused by the formation of ice are exacerbated with deicing chemicals, which increase both the saturation of the concrete and the number of freeze-thaw cycles. The distress mechanisms of scaling are complex on both a microscopic and macroscopic level.
