Adhesive Anchor Installer Certification Program

Currently offered in the New York City Metro Area only

Hilti, Inc. now provides a certification program to train and certify adhesive anchor installers in accordance with the 2012 International Building Code (2012 IBC). The 2012 IBC references the Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete (ACI 318-11), which now requires certification in cases where adhesive anchors are to be installed in horizontal or upwardly inclined orientations to support sustained (e.g., gravity) loads.

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. The HAAICP is designed to verify that certified individuals possess the necessary skills and knowledge to properly install adhesive anchors in concrete.

*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 Licensed Design Professional or Authority Having Jurisdiction.


Available dates for the HAAICP (“Class”) for the greater New York City region are published on the registration calendar (click register link to view). 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 by 9:00 AM the day 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.

If you fail the written exam, you must register to re-take it on another day. If you fail the hands-on exam, you will be allowed to retake it on the same day – if you fail a second time, you must register to retake it on another day. 

Cancelation policy: 
To cancel your initial Class date and obtain a refund, you must notify Hilti via email at anchortraining@hilti.com at least two weeks prior to Class day. FAILURE TO PROVIDE TWO WEEKS NOTICE OF CANCELATION WILL RESULT IN YOUR PAYMENT BEING NON-REFUNDABLE; AND IF YOU DO NOT RESCHEDULE YOUR CLASS, YOUR PAYMENT IS FORFEITED. Failure to appear on your scheduled Class day will be treated as a same-day cancelation, and your registration and payment will be forfeited. 

To reschedule a Class date, you must notify Hilti via email at anchortraining@hilti.com at least 48 hours prior to your scheduled Class day. FAILURE TO PROVIDE  48 HOURS NOTICE OF RESCHEDULING WILL RESULT IN LOSS OF REGISTRATION AND FORFEITURE OF YOUR PAYMENT. You may only reschedule your Class date one time.
