About Us






The Face® F-Number School: An Intensive 2-Day Course

You'll learn how F-Numbers work and how to lay out and measure floors in accordance with ACI and ASTM requirements. 

Students get hands-on experience in collecting and analyzing data from a floor. 

In addition, there's instruction on interpreting results and producing reports.  

Along the way, you'll pick up many helpful tips normally gained only after years of experience. 

Also included are lessons on how to operate and maintain the Dipstick and how to run its basic and advanced software packages.

Graduates, who must pass a final exam, receive frameable and pocket diplomas and become Certified Dipstick Technicians.

Hotel Accommodations:

50% refunds up to 2 weeks before the course. Because we must plan and schedule school facilities and equipment in advance, no refunds will be made after 2 weeks before the course starts. If you cancel and receive no refund, you may attend one of the next three scheduled schools at no charge.

Course Schedule:

On the first day, the course will begin at 8:00 AM and will run until 6:00 PM (including lunch). There will be a Mandatory Practical Exercise of Dipstick Data Collection at the school site in the late afternoon of the first day. These Data Collection sessions are done in two-person teams and will last approximately 2-3 hours. Because of this, you should plan to stay at the hotel or nearby. The second day of the course will run from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM. This is an intensive course covering many subjects in considerable detail in two days. You should plan accordingly.

You Should Bring:

If your company owns a Dipstick, you should bring it to the school. If you have access to a laptop PC, you should bring it, also. This will enable you to process and analyze the data collected on the Dipstick. Each student must have a pocket calculator. Companies sending more than two students should send multiple Dipsticks.
