ICPI Concrete Paver Instillation Certification
Consumers expect knowledgeable installers and the attendance increase at ICPI paver installer certification courses reinforces our commitment to meet those demands" said past ICPI Chairman Steve Berry. "Certification reassures prospective customers that installers have knowledge of industry construction guidelines." The course is designed to enhance the knowledge of individuals involved in the construction of interlocking concrete pavements.

Upon successful completion of the two-day course and exam, newly certified installers receive a certificate. ICPI reinforces installer knowledge through technical literature, guide specifications and continuing education.

ICPI sets the standards of the interlocking concrete pavement industry in North America. The knowledge installers gain while earning certification sets them apart from the competition by helping to reduce or eliminate costly call-backs while meeting the expectations of customers and designers/specifiers.
