    President - Georgia Chapter of ICRI

    Good Morning and thank you for taking the time to revied this email. Right now, the whole world is in unfamiliar territory trying everything we can do to find a sense of normalcy in our days. Currently, with construction, particulary structural restoration, being listed as essential, our members and member companies have a great opportunity to keep our doors open with several modifications to our daily practices. We've seen a change in operation to keep all staff, clients, and pedestrians safe during this time. We believe strongly that the people within this organization are creating safe work environments and are continue to provide the same great service we all have!

    Our board is adhering to Social Distancing practices by communicating regularly by video and phone conference calls. As a result of our last board meeting, and due to the current pandemic surrounding COVID-19, the Georgia Chapter of ICRI has decided to cancel all upcoming luncheons (until further notice) and we have postponed our Annual Golf tournament. Currently, we are looking at dates for September of 2020 to host our Golf Tournament and look forward to having all of our members out on the links! Please stay tuned for more information regarding all ICRI Georgia Upcoming events!

    We everyone the best during the upcoming weeks and months, and look forward to restarting normal Chapter operations when State and Federal officials give the go ahead!

    Certifications and National Spotlight

    Concrete Slab Moisture Testing Technician Certification

    The purpose of this program is to help improve the performance of concrete slab moisture testing to result in more consistent, accurate, and reliable results that will help flooring manufacturers, architects, engineers, and contractors to make better decisions as to when a concrete floor is ready for a floor covering installation.

    For more information, pricing, and schedule, visit this link, https://www.icri.org/page/cert_sched1.


    Concrete Surface Repair Technician (CSRT) Certification

    This online certification program was developed based on industry demand and code language. The ACI 562-16, “Code Requirements for Assessment, Repair, and Rehabilitation of Exisiting Concrete Structures” outlines repair inspector qualifications for the inspection of concrete repairs, and designates an individual who has been certified as an ICRI Concrete Surface Repair Technician, as a qualified inspector.
