TCA member organizations have the experience, expert service and quality products you can depend on for your next successful tilt-up project.
While the work of the Tilt-Up Concrete Association could be drawn out in a long list of benefits, it is more efficient to organize these benefits under two core guiding principles or objectives.
The first, is that together we serve as a powerful force advocating for increased demand of our product/service.
The second, is that we provide opportunities and tools to assist in improving that product.

The Tilt-Up Concrete Association offers two certification programs for the tilt-up industry. The first is a joint program with the American Concrete Institute (ACI) for individuals and the second is a company certification program for general and subcontractors performing tilt-up construction.
The goal of the TCA Company Certification Program is to provide owners, specifiers, and designers with a method for assuring the experience, quality and performance of tilt-up concrete contractors.
The Tilt-Up Supervisor and Technician Certification Program is a collaborative effort of the American Concrete Institute (ACI) and the TCA. Certification is achieved by passing a written exam (supervisor candidates must submit work experience).
Each year, the TCA honors those organizations, people and projects that successfully illustrate the variety, beauty and flexibility of tilt-up construction.
