In developing certification exams for the concrete construction industry, the American Concrete Institute (ACI) has set forth minimum criteria by which an individual’s proficiency is to be judged. Typically, ACI is not in a position to deliver certification exams directly to participants; therefore, it is necessary for ACI to have the ability to delegate this authority. However, if the need arises, ACI reserves the right to conduct exam sessions itself according to each program policy.
In order to allow others to deliver its certification exams, ACI has adopted the “Sponsoring Group” concept. Sponsoring Groups act as agents of ACI in the delivery of ACI certification exams.
