WACEL Technician Certification Program Overview


WACEL provides an easy button for members to comply with certification requirements in metropolitan Washington area jurisdictional special inspection programs by:

  • Providing testing on demand either in the WACEL office or at a member’s office (provided there are five or more who need to be tested)
  • Offering monthly or more frequent proficiency exams
  • Providing monthly training classes for soil, concrete and plan reading

WACEL certifications assess an individual's knowledge of information deemed critical to the proper performance of the tasks associated with the work for which certification is sought. Certification implies solely that an individual has met WACEL criteria and prerequisites and has passed a written examination and in some cases, a performance exam. A certification is valid for five years. WACEL criteria, prerequisites and examinations are compatible with guidelines established by ACI, ASTM, NICET, ICC and local governments.
