CAB Committee

The Certification Accreditation Board (CAB) of Georgia was originally incorporated as the Concrete Advisory Board of Georgia to promote and encourage constructive cooperation among all persons, organizations, and agencies involved in the design, specification, production, construction, and testing of concrete.

In the 1960’s, the CAB prepared and promulgated the Standard Minimum Specifications for Ready Mixed Concrete, the forerunner of ACI 301 Standard Specifications for Structural Concrete. This was revised in 1979 and again in 1987 to reflect updated ACI codes and specifications. In 1996 a decision was made to not update the CAB specification further, but to recommend use of current applicable ACI codes and specifications.

Also early in its history the CAB instituted a program of Certification of Concrete Field Technicians. As the American Concrete Institute became more involved in certification and as ASTM standards increasingly required ACI certification or equal (as in ASTM C 39, C 78, C 94, C 685 and C 1077), CAB became the local sponsoring group for ACI certification programs.

In 1992, after ASTM standards began requiring the inspection or accreditation of concrete testing laboratories, CAB initiated a program of Concrete Laboratory Inspection and Accreditation for conformance to the requirements of ASTM C 1077 Standard Practices for Laboratories Testing Concrete and Concrete Aggregates for Use in Construction and Criteria for Laboratory Evaluation.

In 2007, CAB was renamed the Certification Accreditation Board and made a standing committee of the Georgia Chapter, ACI.

Through the years, CAB’s education, certification and accreditation programs have improved and expanded. These efforts by CAB and its participating organizations have enhanced the quality of concrete construction in Georgia, benefiting the owners of concrete projects and the public in general.

As the local sponsoring group for American Concrete Institute certification programs for Georgia, Georgia Chapter ACI/CAB currently conducts examinations for ten ACI certification programs. CAB offers training in the form of workshops for those seeking certification.
