The American Concrete Institute (ACI) is offering a new series of seminars that will focus on ACI 318-14: Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete and Commentary.

Participants can now learn about the new code directly from an ACI professional during a live seminar, or at their own pace by taking the online course through ACI University. Attendees receive continuing education units (CEUs) for attending the live seminar or for taking the online course. 

According to the institute, ACI 318-14 represents the first major change in code organization in over 40 years and has been completely reorganized from a designer’s perspective. This seminar will help industry professionals get acquainted with the new organization and various technical changes to the code as quickly as possible and demonstrate how you can ensure that your design fully complies with the new code. 

"The philosophy behind the new organizational structure will be demonstrated through a thorough review of the code’s outline and provisions in the major chapters to give attendees new insight into the background behind the new organizational structure, and how the new organization makes it easier to find needed requirements," said an ACI representative.
