Welcome to the PTIA
The Post-Tensioning Institute of Australia (PTIA) was formed to represent the post-tensioning contracting industry in Australia, seeking to maintain a viable and competitive industry with high standards in design and construction of post-tensioning systems for the benefits of its
members, their employees, and their clients.
The objectives of the PTIA are:
- to ensure that the post-tensioning contracting industry is both viable and competitive, and
- to promote high standards in design, construction and materials for post-tensioning systems, consistent with world best practice, and verified by certification of its Corporate and Associate Members, and
- to develop industry work standards which establish appropriate skills of employees, personal development opportunities, a safe working environment, and environmental responsibility, and
- to achieve ongoing technical advances in materials and systems for post-tensioning.
How to become a member
Membership of the PTIA is open to organisations and individuals who have an interest in post-tensioning consistent with the objectives of the PTIA.
There are four categories of membership: Corporate, Associate, Association and Individual. Corporate and some Associate members are required to meet specific criteria which identify technical competence, insurance cover, management plans and resources. These members are required to be audited by the PTIA’s contract auditor to ensure the criteria are met, and to maintain these criteria whilst a member of the PTIA. Audit costs are met by the PTIA.
