MCA is following the CDC & the Governor’s Recommendations for our upcoming Certification & Training Classes.  

ALL MCA Certification CLASSES currently scheduled have been modified.

The MCA has a number of openings for Level I Classes. We need to know ASAP if you or members of your company need to register in order to get the class materials distributed in time.

The Level 1 classes will be held June 8-12 and June 15-19. The testing and hands on portions of the classes will be held at the MCA Training Center located at 3130 Pine Tree, Lansing. 

Online Registration will not be available at this time. YOU MUST CONTACT THE OFFICE TO REGISTER!!

Registrations can be made by contacting Lisa Clegg at 800.678.9622/517.347.7720 or email her at LCLEGG@MICONCRETE.NET.

NOTE: AT THIS TIME THE MCA WILL NOT BE ADDING ANY ADDITIONAL LEVEL 1 CERTIFICATION COURSES UNTIL FALL OF THIS YEAR.

With the COVID-19 pandemic, the MCA has modified the way in which it will be delivering classes this Spring. 

The details for the Level 1 Concrete Certification are summarized below:

  1. Classroom instruction (ACI Field Tests and Michigan Fundamentals) will move from an in-person experience to virtual training. Lab practice and exam days will still be in-person experiences.
  2. The class (limited to 48 students) will be divided into four groups of twelve (12) for both the lab practice and exam day. Groups will be randomly assigned either Tuesday/Wednesday morning; Tuesday/Wednesday afternoon; Thursday/Friday morning; Thursday/Friday afternoon.
  3. Each student will be provided the necessary PPE including gloves, mask and sanitizer. Students will have their temperature checked upon entry to the facility. Students must wear their masks while inside. Six foot social distancing will be strictly enforced.
  4. The student will receive their classroom materials including the ACI Technician workbook (CP-1) and the MCA Fundamentals binder at least a week before the virtual training begins.
  5. The student will study on their own the ACI Field testing portion by logging on to the ACI eLearning link for the Level I Field Tech program and enter the license key provided by the MCA. This program thoroughly covers the seven ASTM standards including interactive quizzes and video of the tests being performed. The license key expires in 90 days once the student accesses the program. This must be completed before the Michigan Fundamentals virtual class begins.
  6. The Michigan Fundamentals virtual training will be conducted on June 8 and June 15, respectively. The training thru Zoom will summarize and answer any questions related to the ACI eLearning material, review the Michigan Fundamentals binder, review the worksheets and practice quiz and discuss the requirements for exam day.
  7. Given the format, lunch is not required. Pre-packaged snacks and beverages will be available during your lab practice and exam time.

If you are interested, or have questions please contact our office at 800.678.9622/517.347.7720 or email Lisa Clegg at LCLEGG@MICONCRETE.NET to register.
