A Pervious Concrete Technician is a person who demonstrated knowledge by successful completion of a written exam about proper procedures to place, compact, finish, edge, joint, cure and protect pervious concrete pavements, but who lacks the requisite field experience to qualify as a pervious concrete Installer or Craftsman.
The Technician level is intended for contractor and non contractor personnel in learning the proper techniques of installing pervious concrete. It is assumed that contractor personnel who are certified as technicians will be supervised by an individual with a higher level of certification and they will upgrade to the higher levels when they achieve the work experience criteria for Installer and Craftsman levels to qualify to install pervious without supervision. This level is also intended for any non-contractor persons such as ready mixed concrete personnel, testing labs, inspectors, admixture personnel, specifiers and engineers that need to understand the pervious concrete system. This certification level is also recommended for individuals who are knowledgeable about pervious concrete who intend to participate in training programs for local sponsoring groups.
