Updated Bridge Certification Program
The Certification Bulletin 2013-1: Current Participant Conversion to Standard Based Bridge Certification Program is the latest resource released and provides the information required to convert bridge certified facilities with certification expiring in August 2013 or after to the new standard based AISC certification program for steel bridge fabricators. Conversion is mandatory for all participants.
In addition whether you design or build bridges, revisions to AISC’s Bridge Quality Management System (QMS) Certification Program will impact your work. The updated Program introduces the Requirements AISC Certification Program for Steel Bridge Fabricators which include three categories: Simple Bridge, Intermediate Bridge and Advanced Bridge, as well as a requirement mandating the Standard for Steel Bridges - 2011 (AISC 205-11) that negates the previous checklist criteria – a move previously accomplished with AISC’s Building and Bridge Component QMS Programs. The reason for these changes is to continue to evolve and advance the Program, not only at the request of the bridge marketplace, but to continually improve our certified participants, which will increase the bridge fabrication industry as a whole
During the transition, this webpage will be the hub for all bridge-fabrication-related certification information and resources. In addition to bridge fabricator certification resources, this page also includes information on the Bridge and Highway Metal Component Manufacturers Program that was introduced in 2009. This program focuses on ancillary bridge components (signs, railing, grid decks, expansion joints, bearing, etc). Both programs offer the bridge industry a valuable means for qualifying firms and serve as an effective way for those firms to communicate their commitment and capability with respect to quality.
