Adhesive Anchor Installer Certification Program

Currently offered in the New York City Metro Area only.

Hilti, Inc. now offers an adhesive anchor installer certification program to train and certify installers of adhesive anchors in accordance with the 2012 International Building Code (2012 IBC). The Hilti Adhesive Anchor Installer Certification Program (HAAICP)* is available in New York City to all construction professionals who desire to improve their knowledge in this area and/or who seek to fulfill the code requirement for certification in cases where adhesive anchors are to be installed in horizontal or upwardly inclined orientations to support sustained (e.g., gravity) loads.

*HAAICP is offered as an "equivalent" program per ACI 318-11 Appendix D Section D.9.2.2. It has been deemed acceptable by the New York City Department of Buildings for projects in New York City. "Equivalence" in other jurisdictions must be determined by the Project Engineer or Authority Having Jurisdiction. 

The Hilti Adhesive Anchor Installer Certification Program is designed to verify that certified individuals possess the necessary skills and knowledge to properly install adhesive anchors in concrete. The installers attend a one-day course in which they are required to pass both a written and hands-on exam. Upon successful execution of both exams, they are issued a certification card valid for 3 years.


Hilti will publish the available dates for the Hilti Adhesive Anchor Certification Installer Program (“Class”) for the greater New York City area, by publication on the registration website. Class size is limited, and enrollment will generally be on a first-come, first-serve basis, although Hilti reserves the right to reject a registration for any or no reason.

Registration will close the earlier of midnight the Thursday before the Class date, or when the Class is full.

Your registration is considered an “offer” to take the Class. Your registration will be considered “accepted” and your participation in the Class confirmed upon completion of the on-line registration, payment of the Class fee, and your receipt of a confirming email from Hilti. By registering you agree to these Terms and Conditions and any interpretation by Hilti thereof.
