User Reviews

The program works. I’m certified in Prestressed Concrete.

I took my test today and if it was not for the use of SI Certs' web based study program for Prestressed Concrete, it would have taken me much longer to study and pass the test.

SI Certs lays out the study material in an easy to follow and interesting format. The use of the plans was extremely helpful, as having to locate a good set of PT plans would have been a challenge.

I would recommend SI Certs to anyone looking to get the PT certification. Again thanks SI Certs for the work you did in putting this program together. Well worth my money. Having used their course made me feel very comfortable going into the test.

Passed Prestressed!

Gabe, I passed the PT both plans and code and I just wanted you to know you did a real good job with updating your plans test to the computerized ICC test. Your hints and points really helped me out and showed me what to look for and expect.

And your teaching on how to handle ICC new plans test really helped, it was really spot on. I’m telling my friends about you guys. Thanks man.

I Passed Prestressed Concrete.

Remember how I told you I took a PT class elsewhere and failed? Now I've taken your course and passed! Thanks again. Everything you said was true.

The plans you have are better than my other school and I finished the code in 1 hour and plans in 1 hour 20 mins. Looking to start masonry next.

"Some inspectors never get the chance to visit a precast concrete plant, or watch excavation walls getting retained with soil nails or grouted tendons. This experience can be difficult to get, making the code portion of the ICC Prestressed Concrete test a challenge since it covers these applications.

This is why we created this course. We’ll walk you through each code book showing many examples of pretension and post-tension applications. We’ve also developed many illustrations showing prestressing in action. We will teach you this discipline while preparing you for the Code test.

Our Training Plan Sets have shop drawings included, along with the structural drawings. You’ll learn how to read both and how to use them together. It will advance you in the field, as well as get you ready for the Plans test. As usual, I’m available for personal coaching, as needed."
