IMI’s Concrete Repair Certificate Program (CRC), developed in partnership with the International Concrete Repair Institute (ICRI), provides BAC craftworkers with the knowledge and skills required to execute sound repairs and properly integrate those repairs visually to match the surrounding concrete.

If you want to be sure the craftworkers on your project are trained under the Concrete Repair Certificate Program, use our sample specification language.
CRC is a hybrid training program covering the role of craftworkers in the overall execution of a concrete repair project. The program, which combines virtual and in-person instruction, provides a minimum of 28 hours of coursework. CRC explores the theory and history behind the concrete repair movement and an in-depth understanding of traditional materials/methods and advancements in concrete repair technology. The learning modules actively engage masonry craftworkers – many of whom have already been involved in high-level concrete repair work – through lecture and hands-on training sessions led by experienced IMI, IMTEF, and ICRI instructors. The course also draws on assistance and participation from building owners, members of the preservation design community, and product manufacturers.
The Concrete Repair Certificate Program is offered at The BAC/IMI John J. Flynn International Training Center outside Washington, DC and regional BAC training centers.
Design professionals and project owners can contact IMI for more information about the program or to access a list of qualified contractors in your area. BAC signatory contractors can also contact IMI for additional background or to inquire about employee training.
BAC craftworkers should contact their local training center or coordinator to inquire about program availability. BAC Local Officers and Training Coordinators can contact IMTEF to enroll members or to get additional information about program availability at the International Training Center. To find out about upcoming classes at the BAC/IMI International Training Center, see the International Masonry Training and Education Foundation’s training calendar.
