At the American Institute of Constructors (AIC), our mission is to accelerate constructor excellence through formal training and certification programs. We are committed to supporting the individual constructor by testing whether you have the necessary construction management skills and expertise to support the management of construction works.
For aspiring construction managers that are currently in a construction management degree program, we offer the Associate Constructor (AC) Level I certification exam. This exam determines whether you have a solid foundation of construction knowledge and skills.
To ensure that you are prepared for our robust exam, we recommend that you complete our online study preparation course. After completing the AIC exam practice test, you will be prepared to validate your competency as a construction manager.
Note: the AC Level I Certification is now the CAC Level I Certification, as of November 2022.
Why Take the AC Pre-Exam Study Course?
Our AC Level I Online Study Course will help you learn more about the content of the AC exam, enhance your knowledge of the AC exam sections, and grow confidence before exam day. This pre-exam prep course is designed to help you:
- Identify where you are strong in certain areas of construction management.
- Understand where you need to close knowledge gaps.
- Reveal where you need to build understanding of key concepts that you will take with you throughout your career.
The study course is not intended to replace a 4-year construction management education program through an accredited university. However, the prep course does address all the major subject areas that will help you verify an overall understanding of construction management and provide you with additional resources to gain additional skills and knowledge.
During the pre-exam course, you will be provided with sample questions and common situations to gauge your level of understanding. Your answers will help you see where you need to spend additional time studying specific aspects of construction management to prepare for the AC exam.
