Qualifications in concrete technology
The Institute of Concrete Technology is internationally recognized by the concrete industry, sets high educational standards and requires its members to abide by a Code of Professional Conduct thus, enhancing the profession of concrete technologist.

The Institute currently recognizes four stages of formal professional qualification.

Please refer to the ‘Grades of membership’ page for guidance on how each qualification relates to ICT membership status.
 
ICT Certificate in Concrete Technology & Construction: Stage 1 - Concrete Practice
The ICT has re-introduced an entry-level qualification Concrete Practice that was formerly administered by City & Guilds of London Institute. This scheme enables technicians, operatives, batch plant supervisors and concrete mixer operators/drivers to achieve a formal certificate in recognition of their success in mastering the basic objectives of activities in the concrete industry. It also serves as the first step for new recruits heading for management in the technology of concrete production. Successful candidates are eligible for membership of the ICT as Technician Members and are entitled to use the designatory letters TechICT after their names.
 
ICT Certificate in Concrete Technology & Construction: Stage 2 - General Principles
The first step in the process of obtaining a recognized qualification in concrete for candidates with some previous experience is the ICT course Concrete Technology and Construction : Stage 2 - General Principles. On completion of the course, candidates’ knowledge of the essential principles of concrete is assessed, currently by a 3-hour closed-book examination. Successful candidates are eligible for membership of the ICT as Affiliate Members and are entitled to use the designatory letters AffICT after their names.
 
ICT Certificate in Concrete Technology & Construction: Stage 3 - Practical Applications
Success at Stage 2 is normally required for enrolment on the next stage, Concrete Technology & Construction: Stage 3 - Practical Applications. This course provides training in the application of the principles of concrete technology to the processes of production and construction techniques. On completion of the course, candidates’ knowledge of the essential principles of concrete is assessed, currently by a 3-hour closed-book examination. Successful candidates are eligible for membership of the ICT as Associate Members and are entitled to use the designatory letters AMICT after their names.

Success at Stage 3, combined with a reasonable length of service and experience at a suitable level of responsibility, are the usual prerequisites for application to enrol on the Advanced Concrete Technology course.
 
ICT Diploma in Concrete Technology & Construction: Stage 4 - Advanced Concrete Technology (ACT)
The Diploma in Advanced Concrete Technology has world-wide acceptance as the leading qualification in concrete technology.

The aim of the course is to provide a teaching and learning experience for participants such that they obtain an in-depth knowledge at an advanced level of a wide variety of topics within the field of concrete technology. The course fully prepares candidates for two 3-hour examinations for the Diploma in Advanced Concrete Technology. Between the start of the course and the final examinations the candidate is required to carry out either an individual project or a number of individual assignments which are assessed by the ICT examiners.
