Specialized Training for Optimal Results
With the advancement of construction technology, materials and applications, it has become critical to maintain a highly-trained workforce. 
CSI maintains an aggressive training regimen as well as specialized industry certifications for our teams throughout the Northeast and Southeast. 
A highly skilled team provides key benefits to CSI customers, including:
  • Cost Savings due to project and process efficiency
  • Assurance that the team is trained and/or certified in the procedures and standards set forth by material manufacturers or product specifiers for maximizing product performance
CSI works with global manufacturing companies to train our workforce in the latest advancements and refresher courses in the staples of our industry. 
For example, the CSI-Southeast office recently participated with a leading materials manufacturer in field evaluations of a high-performance concrete repair material.  Proper mixing, placement and curing were all tested and evaluated by our skilled staff as well as manufacturers' representatives. 
Just a few of the many trade organizations that CSI maintains current certifications and or affiliations with include:
American Concrete Institute (ACI); National Safety Council (NSC); International Concrete Repair Institute (ICRI); Post Tensioning Institute (PTI); U.S. Green Building Institute (USGBC); American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE); Construction Specification Institute (CSI)
