Their customer support is unbelievable!

David W headshot

This app is perfect and their customer support is unbelievable! All I had to do was follow the class, step by step, and I passed all 3 tests (first try) to become a reinforced concrete inspector. I was extremely nervous about the plans-reading test, but I passed that as well.

I was especially impressed with how helpful these guys are when I had questions. They always respond within a day or two and answer all my questions, even after my paid class had ended. I am now taking their masonry class and so far it is equally impressive. I highly recommend these classes.

Finally, I passed Reinforced Concrete.

Hey Gabe, I just called you to tell you I finally passed this test! You know how hard this has been for me and what I've gone through, particularly since English isn't my first language. I am extremely grateful for everything you have done. There's no way I would have passed this test without you. If you're ever in Washington and need a place to stay let me know. Now on to PT with SI Certs.

Gabe, your program has worked so well for our company. We're seeing 90% passing rates on the test. The material is solid. Lots of strong feedback from our field personnel. We know our people are receiving valuable training in the process, and we're getting SI Certs adopted company-wide.

I am a structural engineer by profession. Thank you for this training.

The training has really saved me a lot of time. I am a civil engineer with a structural emphasis and your material was very good and accurate. The plan reading part was very helpful to me to prepare for this test. Now that I've passed Reinforced Concrete with you, I'm doing your PT course. Believe me this has saved me a tremendous amount of time.

Passed on the first attempt

Your courses have been very helpful and worthwhile. I've used them to prepare for the ICC concrete, masonry, and soils tests, all of which I've passed on the first attempt.

Matt Owens, Reinforced Concrete Instructor
Matt Owens, MSI, CWI
Chief Technical Advisor for Special Inspection

“As perhaps the most demanding and in-demand certifications among the Special Inspection suite, Reinforced Concrete is the gateway for many field technicians seeking to become inspectors.

This course is phenomenal. Not only have we nailed the Codes portion of the test – teaching the relevant parts of the code and giving you the right practice – but Reinforced Concrete has the most in-depth plan reading training available on our site, paving the way for the rest of the ICC Special Inspection certification training courses. Using our introductory plan reading training plus our 4 Training Plan Sets, you can be confident going into the Plans portion of the test.

As with all of the ICC Special Inspection training, I’m one click away. Ready to help, support, and coach you to success.”
