ACPA Concrete Pump Operator Certification is the only industry-recognized certification program which provides an independent written assessment of an operator’s knowledge regarding concrete pump safety. Specific equipment experience time and four hours of ACPA sanctioned safety training is required for ACPA Certification and Re-Certification. Attending WOC Seminar TU403 on Concrete Pump Safety fulfills the safety training requirement and is a comprehensive, in-depth course covering all the basics included in the Certification Exam. Inexperienced operators can fulfill their safety training requirement and still have the opportunity to take the exam and then apply for certification once they reach the required experience time.
Certification, Re-Certification and apprentice examinations will be available later after the training seminar. For more information and to register for the written examination, contact ACPA at 614.431.5618, email firstname.lastname@example.org. A valid driver license is required for all certifications.
