ACI Certification Expirations - COVID -19

The COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent emergency actions have caused many disruptions, including rescheduling of ACI Certification education and exam sessions to reduce the risk of spreading the virus. These actions may result in the expiration of ACI Certification of individuals seeking recertification before the rescheduled session takes place. As a result, ACI has been asked to extend certifications so that individuals may remain in compliance with project requirements as they await recertification testing; for a number of reasons, ACI has determined that extending certifications is not the best solution.


ACI believes the EOR/Specifier is the proper individual to review a technician’s credentials and determine if a waiver is warranted/appropriate. This can then be documented in the project files along with an explanation referencing recertification difficulties due to COVID-19 disruptions.


If needed, ACI Certification will assist in providing an explanation to any EOR/Specifier; please contact:
